Written on the night it happened, by myself.
13 American coal miners are trapped two miles underground by an explosion.
3 children and 1 woman in Germany are also trapped under the roof
of an ice rink; 'Hundreds' of rescue workers
and sniffer dogs are searching for them.
A few quotes from the BBC news page.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4579270.stm

"No amount of snow should cause a roof to collapse," said one man, "and we've had more snow than this before."

"Questions are also being asked about why the local ice hockey team should have been told to cancel its scheduled practice on the day of the accident, but the ice rink remained open for the general public anyway. "

Another roof collapses in Poland which leaves 150 people injured.
"It took just a few seconds for this roof to collapse and it looked like a plane crashed on top,'' said Jerzy Kozrych, a survivor. "There were hundreds of people trying to crawl out, a total mess, like Judgement Day."

Jacob Parade, a journalist with TVN24 in Poland, told the BBC the collapse was a surprise as the hall - built in the late 1990s - was so new.

The fire brigade and police said the weight of snow on the roof was responsible.

But the building's manager told Polish TV that snow had been regularly cleared from the roof, which was backed up by at least two people in BBC interviews.

Graf Pietro told the BBC the snow on the roof was not heavy, and that those responsible for clearing it had done a good job.

So whats going on?
The BBC on both occassions assert 'fishyness' into the articles, giving quotes from locals refering to the unlikelyhood of these events happening.
I would advise we keep our eyes peeled for events of this type that involve rescue opperations in particular.

Has anyone else seen a trend yet?
