MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--Randal McCloy, the sole survivor of last week’s Sago Mine accident, remains in critical condition at West Virginia University Hospitals.

McCloy’s hemodialysis was continued Monday.

WVU has established a web page for the public and the news media that will be updated as often as needed. A video of this morning’s briefing is available. The site is: http://www.health.wvu.edu/mccloy/mccloy.htm
