State Homeland Security officials say a miner injured in a Tuesday morning accident was knocked unconscious by a cable.

Clay Carney, operations officer for the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, said his office received a report of a miner knocked unconscious by a winch cable. An ambulance was sent to the scene and one person was taken to Raleigh General Hospital.

Carney said the mine, on Wolf Run Road in Eccles, was operated by Scott Depot-based International Coal Group.

The Register-Herald attempted to contact a spokesman for International Coal Group Wednesday, but was told a spokesman was not available.
