DEUTZEN, GERMANY - JANUARY 25: A worker stands next to the excavation wheel of a 950-tonne bucket excavator that had fallen over prior to attempting to set it upright following an accident at an open-pit coal mine on January 25, 2013 near Deutzen, Germany. The bucket excavator tipped over last summer after plateaus of clay and sand nearby gave way, pushing a layer of coal underneath. The excavator had been lying severely tilted to one side ever since at the Vereinigtes Schleenhain mine, which is operated by Mibrag. Open-pit lignite coal mines are still common across eastern Germany and produce coal for local electricity production. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
