Ohio-Based Boss of Utah Mine Defends Company, Search For Miners

HUNTINGTON, Utah (AP) - Coal mine boss Bob Murray said he's hurt and stung by criticism that he isn't doing enough to find the six miners trapped in Utah.

The head of Cleveland-based Murray Energy says he hasn't deserted anyone. That's in response to victims' relatives who say officials have given up on finding their loved ones, lost in a cave-in more than two weeks ago.

In a phone call with The Associated Press, Murray also said he "came apart" after a second collapse that killed three rescue workers and injured six others Thursday night. He says he was under a doctor's care for a couple of days.
