Warning: This report contains audio and video that may upset some viewers
Previously unheard audio that reveals breakdowns, missing equipment and a gas leak all on the day of the Pike River Mine explosion has been leaked.
When charges against the former CEO of the company Peter Whittall were dropped, it became apparent that the Pike River was a disaster with no responsibility.
Twenty-nine people could die, a business could be lost, a community could be shattered and no one would be held accountable.
