Crews tried to lower a robotic camera into a Utah mountain Tuesday and drilled yet another hole into the coal mine where six miners have been trapped for more than three weeks. Officials hoped the seventh hole would break into the coal mine's so-called kitchen, a designated safety area 1,800 feet (549 meters) underground where the miners could have sought protection after the Aug. 6 cave-in. Rescuers have detected no sign of life from the men. The work was interrupted Monday by heavy rain that washed out work sites on steep terrain above the Crandall Canyon mine, about 120 miles (193 kilometers) south of Salt Lake City.
