Trapped Miners Face Long Wait for Rescue
Thirty-three Chilean miners trapped deep inside a gold/copper mine may have to wait until well into November or even December for a new shaft to be drilled so they can be rescued.
The miners, who were trapped by a cave-in, took refuge in an underground shelter. They were able to send notes to the surface via probes that were drilled into their area. Water, food and medicines are being delivered to the trapped miners through the probes.
