‘We drank mine water’ Survivor Who were Trapped in Abandoned Coal Mine Tell Their Tale

After being trapped in an abandoned West Virginia coal mine for days, a pair of young explorers said they learned the biggest lesson of their lives.

Cody Beverly, 21, told ABC News on Wednesday that “Everyone who was involved in searching for us, I just wanna thank you, with everything inside of me — this is the biggest lesson I’ve ever learned in my life, “This is a life-changing experience for me.”

Beverly and two friends, Kayla Williams, 25, Erica Treadway, 31, were found and rescued from the Rock House Powellton mine in Clear Creek, about 30 miles southeast of Charleston, West Virginia, on Wednesday night. They entered the inactive coal mine around 3 a.m. on Saturday looking for copper, officials said.

Williams told ABC News on Wednesday “All the effort that everybody put in to get us out, we really appreciate it, and we thank God, “We have great families. We knew they was going to find us.”

Beverly and Williams spoke with reports outside of Charleston General Hospital, where they were taken for an examination after being rescued.

All three were released from the hospital early on Thursday. Treadway refused to comment

Beverly said “I’m just glad to be home with my family, my friends, my brothers, that I see around me right now, my family,”.

“We drank mine water.” Beverly said when asked how they managed to survive.

He said “We had no food, “We just found a stream in the mine and started drinking it and hoping and praying to God it wasn’t contaminated.”

Williams narrated that they “panicked sometimes,” but the pair said prayer, determination and God is what got them though.

“We just want to thank God, that’s the main person we’re thanking,” Beverly said. “We stayed together and we prayed to God. … We pulled together as much as we could.”
