Human remains spotted in New Zealand coal mine 11 years after explosions killed 29 men with their bodies missing



At least two sets of human remains have been pictured deep inside a New Zealand coal mine, 11 years after a series of explosions killed 29 men there.



Police say they also saw what looked like a third body but the hard-to-reach mine location meant there was no chance of recovering the remains.



The Pike River mining disaster happened in November 2010 when two blasts ripped through the mine killing 29 men with only two were on shift, able to escape.


Since the tragic event, none of the miners' bodies have ever been recovered.
