TALLMANSVILLE, West Virginia (CNN) — Joy turned to sorrow in three short hours Wednesday for relatives of a dozen men found dead in a West Virginia coal mine. “Miscommunication” spawned early reports of their survival.

Just before midnight, miners’ families thought the men were alive after 41 hours of entrapment. An ambulance rushed one miner to a hospital in critical condition as church bells rang in celebration.
Just after 3 a.m. mine company chief Ben Hatfield announced that 12 of the 13 were dead.
There had been a tragic “miscommunication,” Hatfield said.
