Settlement Offered For Families Of The Mine Explosion

The daughter of one of 29 men killed in a West Virginia coal mine explosion says owner Massey Energy is offering each family a $3 million settlement.

Earlier this week, Virginia-based Massey laid out a financial package that it said would free the families from ever worrying about money.

Massey says accepting wouldn't bar families from taking legal action.

The April 5th explosion is the nation's worst coal mining disaster in 40 years.
