Mine Explosion

Today the news is reporting only 1 survivor in that West Virginia mine explosion. Last night the news mistakenly reported 12 had survived. Apparently, the mining company knew within 20 minutes of the announcement that it had made a mistake, but did not correct the information for 3 hours.

One woman has stated she's going to sue the mining company for lying to her. I'm sorry, but that is just irrational. It's sad that her dad died and all, but last time I checked, lying (and I wouldn't even call it that) is not illegal. People say ridiculous things when they are emotional. This would be a frivolous lawsuit at best. She sounds less concerned for her dad and more concerned about how much money she can get her hands on.
