Faking it in Poland

It was reported in the Polish media that on Monday night, October 6 2014, at 8:55 pm local time an explosion occurred in the Wesoła coal mine in Mysłowice in southern Poland.

The key message went like this: "An ignition and probably a methane explosion occurred at the depth of 665 meters, on the wall 560". Thirty seven miners were said to have been present in the danger zone at the time of accident.

However, a conscious analysis of the media reports strongly suggests that the accident reports are fake.
