"Recreational miner rescued from pit" (Bakersfield Californian, 4/9/12) Firefighters rescued the man, "who suffered major injuries when he became trapped in a pit near Randsburg in eastern Kern County" when a "side wall ... caved in on him." The man "was dry mining a 3- or 4-foot-deep open pit when dirt and rocks sloughed off a wall and trapped him," a Kern County Fire Department spokesman said. "About 10 firefighters from Randsburg and Ridgecrest used tools including shovels" to get him out. The pit was "in a popular prospecting area" near Duisenburg mining camp. www.bakersfieldcalifornian.com/local/x1322082818/Recreational-miner-rescued-from-pit
