Gold Hunting Turns Deadly

By  | 

Looking for gold turned tragic in California over the weekend.

Three men were found dead in an abandoned gold mine.

Neighbors went looking for the two brothers and their best friend Saturday when they were late for an event and discovered their bodies.

It's believed that the three had pumped out the mine, to perhaps, look for gold.

According to the Madera County Sheriff's office, the area is full of abandoned mines. Most have collapsed or filled with water.

The cause of the deaths has not been released.
