020 A Miner Killed in Central Qld.

The news of a coal miner killed in a local mine in Central Qld prompted this shorter episode from Mad Mumzie. The guy that died was also a local in her town. Now more than ever we need to watch out for each other, and ask “RuOK?” Also it really hits home how life and death mining can be. Stay safe at work and watch out for each other.
