Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy spokeswoman Tarah Kesterson tells us the miner was pinned between the cutter head of the continuous mining machine and the wall of the mine known as the rib.
The miner, whose name was not released, was flown to Bristol Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. We've learned his condition has stabilized.
It happened around 9:00 PM Thursday night at Buchanan Number One.
DMME has a team of investigators on site.
