Workers Step Up Efforts to Rescue W. Va. Miners

Rescue crews in West Virginia continue efforts to save 13 coal miners trapped since Monday. A camera-equipped robot has gotten stuck in debris, and workers are now more than 10,000 feet into the mine. There's been no signal from the miners, and air-quality tests show very high levels of carbon monoxide.
