Chilean mine rescue - an incredible human story

I've been totally enthralled by what I've managed to see of the Chilean mine rescue. Very impressed with not just the Chilean organisation, but also the character of the miners themselves. It would seem that the religious faith of many amongst them has helped them cope. Can't help but be moved by it all. I just pray that the media lets them get on with their lives after it's all over. What a bond they will have between them from now on!

Here's an interesting summary of their whole experience and how they've coped.

Love this detail: "One of the miners' most relished gifts was a small high-definition video camera with which they've recorded a large part of their ordeal. Despite the hazards they confront, the men have maintained high spirits and the most distinguished humorists among them have dispatched eight hours of their favorite jokes on film. "
