An employee died working in a Washington coal mine site just days before the new year, according to the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration.

Caleb Brown, 28, was killed Dec. 29, 2018, while aboard a barge that sank in a recovery pond at TransAlta Corp.'s Centralia mine in Lewis County, The (Longview, Wash.) Daily News reported.
