Moshier's face was not disfigured or bandaged, and other parts of her body were visible, he said.

Rescue workers counted 54 bodies in the shaft by late Tuesday, while 13 other miners remained unaccounted for, Col. Yuri Krashkin of the Ministry of Emergency Situations said. ! Authorities said most of the victims died of burns or inhalation of poison gases, although the tyast also caused cave-ins. ; The explosion 1,080 feet Below the surface happened so duickly that the miners had no tjme to don emergency breathing gear, NTV television reported. I Six miners had left the shaft ajnd were on their way out of the ijiine when the methane exploded early Tuesday. They were Hospitalized with gas poisoning. !

A third passenger, James Felts, also died. The driver, 20-year-old William Nesmith, was in fair condition. The driver of the other pickup and his passenger received minor injuries. The mix-up occurred when one of Nesmith's relatives, who said he was a friend of both girls, rnisidentified them in the emergency room. Initial identification can be done by anyone, Slovis said. But that ID would not be used to make a decision on operating or for other serious medical questions. ( On Sunday the same day Moshier's death announcement appeared in The Tennessean newspaper staff removed the tube from her throat and asked her who she was. Funeral home director David Stephens said that Giselle Moshier told him on Friday that she did not believe the body was her daughter's. James Omer Jr., a lawyer for the Moshiers, criticized the hospital and medical examiner for failing to ask a family member to identify the dead girl. "I am going to get to the bottom of where she's been and why nobody asked me to identify the body," Kathy Getty she said. "Nobody should have to go through what I've been through." Kathy Getty unknowingly kept a four-day vigil at the bedside of her dead daughter's best friend. -Vie Associated Press NASHVILLE - Kathy Getty spent Thanksgiving weekend sitting by the bedside of a critically injured girl she Wought was her daughter, only to find 'out the girl was not her child. T, Her 16-year-old daughter, Tiffany, !was dead. The girl in the hospital was Tier daughter's best friend, also named Jiffany. ;M "I go in and see this child and pray for her and give her love and attention, nd then four days later they tell me it's not my baby," Getty said. "I have a live, comatose daughter and then they shock the hell out of me by saying she's -been dead. This is so horrible." -u," The hospitalized girl is 14-year-old Tiffany Moshier, who was with Getty's daughter in a pickup that smashed head-on into another pickup last week. Moshier, who suffered facial injures and was unable to speak until Sunday, has improved and was in fair condition Tuesday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. ?"' Hospital spokesman John Houser said the mix-up was regrettable, but v , i ; r , (' 1 Critics said the new recommendations and the huge commitment they require up to six hours a day may be out of touch with reality. "I think these guidelines will present a problem for new mothers who have no choice but to go back into the work force quickly," said Janice Rocco of the National Organization for Women. "They might already feel guilty about working, and this might add even more to that." Companies can help by providing private rooms where nursing mothers can pump their breasts so their milk can be bottled, refrigerated and fed to their babies later, said the academy, based in the Chicago area. Research has shown that breastfed babies are less likely to get such ailments as diarrhea, ear infections and bacterial meningitis than babies who are fed infant formula. Also, mothers who breast-feed reduce their risk of ovarian and premenopausal breast cancer, and they return to their pre-pregnancy weight more quickly than mothers who use bottles, studies show. But critics say the recommendations and the huge commitment may be out of touch with reality. The Associated Press CHICAGO Mothers should breast-feed their babies for at least a year, according to a pediatric group's recommendation that replaces a 15-year-old statement suggesting six to 12 months of nursing. Feedings should begin within an . hour of birth and continue eight to 12 times every 24 hours, with each feeding lasting 20 to 30 minutes, the American Academy of Pediatrics said Monday. And it should continue past the child's first birthday "for as long as mutually desired," said the nation's largest group of children's doctors. Almost all babies, including those born sick or prematurely, should be breast-fed, according to the new recommendation. The only exceptions should be for mothers who use illegal drugs or have tuberculosis or the AIDS virus, the academy said. made the suggestion as "a possible proposal on START III," Interfax reported. Russia and the United States have started preliminary talks about a new strategic arms treaty but formal negotiations cannot begin until the Russian parliament ratifies START II, which was signed in 1993 and has bee(i ratified by the U.S. Senate. Opposition in the Communist-dominated lower house of the parliament, the State Duma, has blocked ratification of START II in Russia. The treaty would cut the United States and Russia to fewer than 3,500 warheads each. Yeltsin has repeatedly promised to push for ratification but so far with little effect This was not the first impromptu disarmament initiative by Yeltsin. To the apparent surprise of his aides he offered at a NATO summit in Paris on May 27 to remove the warheads of nuclear missiles aimed at alliance members. But his remark was later explained as being only an offer to re-target such missiles. The Russian president made the remarks, but they were clarified later by a spokesman. The Washington Post MOSCOW President Boris Yeltsin unexpectedly pledged Tuesday that Russia will unilaterally cut its nuclear arsenal by a third, but his remarks during a state visit to Sweden were clarified later by a spokesman as referring to possible reductions in a future nuclear arms treaty. "I am here making public for the first time that we, in a unilateral manner, are reducing by another third the number of nuclear warheads," Yeltsin said, without providing further details, at a Stockholm news conference during a three-day trip to Sweden. "Russia will take no actions to unleash a war for as long as I am president," said Yeltsin, who launched a war three years ago against the separatist internal republic of Chechnya. "On the whole, the danger of military actions has decreased throughout the world. The fact that America and (Russia) succeeded in cutting the nuclear weapons by one-third contributed to reducing the danger of war." "We must bring the matter to an end," Yeltsin said, "to a complete elimination of nuclear weapons." Later, his press secretary, Sergei Yastrzhembsky, told reporters Yeltsin was not making an imminent proposal, but was revealing a private initiative he had made to President Clinton. Yastrzhembsky said of Yeltsin's comments, "This issue is not on the negotiating table." He said Yeltsin, who made the remark at the end of a long day, had been "actively promoting" the initiative. "It existed on the level of heads of state and the president has decided to make it public," he said. "It is a unilateral initiative and it does not mean a unilateral step to cut weapons." Yastrzhembsky said Yeltsin f J--,.,T t..,. n't be made," he said. Getty has spent the past two days planning a funeral, while the Moshier family canceled the service planned for their daughter. Shell Irwin, Moshier's aunt, flew to Tennessee from Kansas City expecting to attend her niece's funeral. She's now at her bedside. "It makes you believe in miracles," Irwin said Monday. How the mix-up in identifications occurred still is being investigated by the hospital. Tiffany Moshier is petite and dark-haired, while Tiffany Getty was blond and several inches taller. "This has never happened before," said Dr. Corey Slovis, head of the emergency room. "In retrospect, now that it has happened, we're going to have to rethink our whole procedure."

Kuzbass region of southern Siberia. Rescue teams were sent to Novokuznetsk, 1,850 miles southeast of Moscow. Russia's mining industry has been plagued by deteriorating safety and working conditions, due largely to a lack of money. Prior to Tuesday's explosion, accidents in Russia killed 191 miners so far this year, Vladimir Rossikhin, the chief safety inspector of the Russian Coal Miners' Union, told the Interfax news agency.
