The Media Center provided coverage via-satellite February 23, 2012 for the state of WV's report on the Upper Big Branch Mine Explosion that claimed 29 lives on April 5, 2010. Unfortunately this horrific accident could've been prevented, however justice will be served. On February 22, 2012, the former superintendent and the Upper Big Branch mine boss, Gary May, 43, was charged with fraud in the deadly mine blast. Attorney Booth Goodwin said his investigation of the worst U.S. mine disaster in four decades is "absolutely not" finished.
