      Man Dies After Falling Down Nevada Mine Shaft
      KTVN - Reno,NV,USA
      October 18, 2008
       

      The Lyon County Sheriff's Office confirmed Saturday a man died of his injuries after falling down a mine shaft in Lyon County.

      Deputies say Terry Berardy of Calaveras County, California was exploring mine shafts with family and friends, around the Ludwig Mine just west of Yerington. Just after 10:00 am, Berardy fell down a mine shaft roughly 100 feet deep.

      Investigators determined Berardy was dead before rescuers arrived on-scene.

      No one else was hurt in this accident.

      The Washoe County Hasty Team, Lyon County Search and Rescue, and the Mason Valley Fire Department worked together in this incident.

      An investigation is ongoing.
