Trivia

"Man a Mile", is a reference to an old saying regarding the railroad. When the Transcontinental Railroad was being built it was the Chinese who were actually laying the tracks and supervising the dynamite in the tunnels, and the saying is that "There is one dead Chinese man for every mile of that railroad." In this episode, there was a dead man for every mile of tunnel that the construction workers were building under the city. See more »

Quotes

Detective Danny Messer: Isn't this OSHA's thing, workplace fatality?
Detective Mac Taylor: It would be, if Pete Riggs worked down in the tunnel. He worked up top, loading and unloading. And he had no protective gear. That makes this our scene.
Detective Danny Messer: So, you're still a Sandhog if you work above ground?
Detective Mac Taylor: A Sandhog is anyone who helps build one of these tunnels. Just because you're not seven hundred feet down there doesn't mean you're not one of them.

One Dead 'Hog,' One Killer 'Hogg'
28 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a story of "sandhogs," and it doesn't make them look good, at least this small bunch one loses one of them in an accident.....or was it murder? Sandhogs are the guys working underground digging water tunnels and maintaining them in NYC. There is a group for each section of pipe laid. In this part of town, a dead body is found after a planned explosion on Tunnel $3. He's part of the crew. How did this guy die, and was it before the explosion or because of it? Mac and the boys are under pressure to get answers quickly because each day they are shutting this tunnel down it's costing tons of money to the city.

The man died of asthma and he apparently was moved from where he keeled over before the blast. Things are looking suspicious. We find out that this is a tight-knit group of workers and each of the handful of guys is a legitimate suspect, thanks to a bunch of injuries and evidence of the dead man on all of these guys.

There is a second case on this show. In it, the girls - "Stella" and "Aiden"- investigate a body that washed ashore. It was that of a teenage girl, a poor girl who was attending a rich school. Stella thinks that if they discover where this girl entered the water, it might go a long way in solving their case. Frankly, there is not much time is spent on this case. In this episode. Most of it is on the "sandhogs."
