    [QUOTE](CNN) -- The man who fell into an abandoned northern Nevada mine earlier this week has been declared dead, an official said Saturday.

    U.S. Bureau of Land Management spokesman Doran Sanchez said the Pershing County, Nevada, coroner made the determination around 12:30 Friday afternoon.

    Sanchez said there was no safe way to retrieve the body and that the shaft would be sealed.

    The 28-year-old man, who has not been identified, plunged into part of what's called Murphy's Mine Complex on Wednesday, officials have said.

    Rescue teams were called in, but operations were abandoned shortly after authorities determined that sending anyone into the shaft would be too dangerous, given the mine's age and instability.

    They lowered a camera that showed the man still breathing as of 3 a.m. Friday.

    Sanchez said the young man had suffered severe head and body trauma injuries during the accident.

    The man fell into the shaft in part of Pershing County, located about 60 miles south of the city of Winnemuca. The complex dates back to 1895 and had been abandoned.

    He worked as a contract employee of a drilling company, said Sanchez, adding that the 28-year-old grew up and lived in the local community.[/QUOTE]

    Contract employee = disposable employee. You need anymore proof than this?

    My office uses a whole assortment of "contract employees", and not a single one is "disposable".

    The only thing your post is proof of is how utterly ignorant you are, and the only thing here disposable is your opinions.

    :rolleyes:

    What difference does that make to your claim that "contract employees" lives are expendable?

    The reason to hire contract employees and/or consultants are many and varied, and not a single ones life is "expendanle" in the way you implied.

    If you'd like to discuss expendable lives, maybe we should talk about what value our Federal Govt. puts on our Law Enforcement Officers on the southern border. Feeling a little "expendable" yourself these days cr? I feel for you, because to your bosses in the Federal Govt., you probably are...

    No politics in the champagne room. Head to that board for the ridiculous assertions.

    The guy should show some personal responsibility and pull himself up by the bootstraps and climb out on his own. :yes:

    I fall into a mineshaft at least once a week, and you don't see me calling "911" or the "emergency services" to get rescued. :P

    You can't have it both ways, cr. When somebody slaps you back; just smile and take it.
