    B.C. mine's low oxygen led to deaths, report says - By PETTI FONG, The Globe and Mail
    At first breath, nothing appeared wrong.

    The second breath was the killer.

    'Unprecedented' situation killed 4 By Derrick Penner, Vancouver Sun
    On May 17, after Erickson had been reported missing, searchers and would-be rescuers Bob Newcombe, a Teck Cominco manager, and paramedics Kim Weitzel and Shawn Currier went into the shed, breathed in the oxygen-starved air and died.

    'We have clearly established the cause of death of the four victims,' Hermann said in his report. 'But this accident is unprecedented in the history of mining and the process that led to the oxygen-depleted atmosphere has not, to our knowledge, occurred anywhere else in the world.'
