Chilean mine rescue – update

with one comment

At last some recent news.

One of the problems of our modern media is that there is so much competition for news that old stories frequently just seem to disappear.

So it was delightful to find in last Saturday’s Daily Telegraph news that the rescue shaft had achieved a very important milestone – the pilot shaft, 12 inches in diameter, had broken through to the chamber where the miners patiently wait for their rescue.

Rescuers working to release 33 trapped Chilean miners have achieved a pivotal breakthrough by drilling an escape shaft through to the underground chamber occupied by the men.

Anyway, full story is here

And, of course, life does go on as this video clip happily illustrates.
