United States USA Date:1921 Duration:1 min 36 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A documentary depicts safety measures and rescue procedures for workers in mines in the United States. Dramatization shows a miner underground nailing up a curtain to reduce suffocation effects of smoke or explosion. On the surface, a mine worker rescue truck arrives. Rescuers strap on rescue backpacks with oxygen air tanks and head toward a mine to rescue trapped miners. (Slate makes reference to use of a canary to detect carbon monoxide gas, and to a miner revived with oxygen, but no canary and no miner victim is shown.)
