Miner dies from injuries sustained in W.Va. coal accident

A coal miner died April 6 due to injuries sustained from an earlier accident at a West Virginia coal mine.

According to the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training, section foreman Dennis Fillinger, 62, of Harts, W.Va., was struck by a piece of falling rock about 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 23 at the CK Mine No. 5 in Mingo County. The mine is operated by C K Coal Corp.

U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration data shows the mine produced 102,133 tons of coal in 2016 after production started in the third quarter. The death was the third in West Virginia this year.
