Scores of years ago three coal miners were badly burnt in an accident.

Officials concerned took prompt measures for curing them, but they did not report the accident to the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il lest it should pain him.

However, Kim Jong Il came to learn about it. He called an official and reproached him for not having reported it to him. 

Then he said: Nothing is more important than to save the coal miners; we must take immediate measures for saving them; we should save them at any cost, restore them fully and help them to return to their work.

He ordered to dispatch a plane to send a medical team and medicines to them as soon as possible. Under his concern the coal miners were rescued from the jaws of death and returned to their work in good health.
