Photo detail

In this undated photo provided by Denise Westenskow, the subject's mother, Devin Westenskow, 28, of Evanston, Wyo. is shown. Westenskow fell 190 feet into an abandoned Nevada mine and died Friday after the unstable and crumbling shaft prevented rescuers from reaching him. Westenskow worked at a geothermal drilling operation in Nevada and had gone exploring Wednesday, March 2, 2011 with two friends during his off-hours when he fell into the open shaft northeast of Reno, authorities said. The family of Westenskow, who has five children, thanked rescue workers in a statement. (AP Photo/Denise Westenskow) NO SALES
