Man Dies In Mining Accident

An eastern Kentucky man is dead after he fell in a mine accident.

It happened early Friday morning in the Ary community in Perry County.

State mining officials identified the victim as 55-year-old Harold Lee Graham from Campton. He worked at the ICG Hazard mine.

Investigators say he was using a bulldozer to move debris and somehow fell over a 180 foot tall high-wall.

State officials are looking into what caused the accident. The mine will stay closed until the on-site investigation is complete.

This is the fourth fatal mine accident reported in Kentucky in 2008.
