RICHMOND, BC - Mr. James L. Swanson, Chairman and Mr. Terry Ibbetson, President of CON-SPACE Communications Ltd., (TSX:CCB) today announced that Disney's Touchstone movie depicting the Pennsylvania Mine Rescue will be shown Sunday November 24th on ABC in the USA and CTV in Canada.
CON-SPACE communication equipment played a critical role in the original rescue and a System identical to the one used in the rescue was loaned to Disney for the making of the movie. Rob Zaremski, the CON-SPACE Representative who spent 56 hours on site and first spoke to the trapped miners, was also present on the set as an adviser to ensure authenticity.
"The world will now see Hollywood's version of the disaster and successful rescue of the nine men trapped 240 feet below ground for three days", said Swanson. "The movie will allow us to relive the moment when Rob lowered our Rescue Probe through a six-inch air hole down to the miners and confirmed that all nine were alive and waiting to be rescued."
CON-SPACE designed their Rescue Probe to provide communication with trapped victims of either natural or manmade disasters. The Company's products were also used in rescue attempts after the September 11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
With their experience at Ground Zero and with over 900 Rescue Teams in North America using their equipment, CON-SPACE is now responding to calls from Europe and other countries concerned with terrorism.
The movie is expected to start at 8.00pm
