Family and friends Wednesday night remembered the 12 miners who died this week after an explosion at the Sago Mine in West Virginia. A 13th miner survived.

Officials with International Coal Group, the owner of the Sago Mine, tried to explain what happened to the miners and why family members were initially misinformed about their fate.
