    33 miners in Chile are alive, but stuck for MONTHS!

    COPIAPO, Chile – For 33 men found alive after 17 days trapped deep in a copper and gold mine, the toughest challenge now may be preserving their sanity during the months it may take to carve a tunnel big enough for them to get out.

    Praise the Lord they are safe, and continued prayers for their sanity!

    I read somewhere this morning, sorry don't remember where, that a US expert is saying it should take weeks rather than months to drill the escape route. Thankfully, they are reaching them with food and water and working on improving communication with their families. I'm not claustrophobic, but thinking about being trapped underground for that long is very frightening. I suppose they are more used to than most, but poor things. They seem to be in very good spirits at this time and are aware that it will take some time to get them out. They also have some psychiatric experts coming in to help them through the ordeal.

    Chilean Miners will be trapped for the next 4 months

    This is one of the most incredible stories I have ever, ever read....if there is a technology or anything we have to offer that can mitigate this situation, I PRAY it is deployed immediately to this mine...these miners (33) have been surviving in a living room-sized safety tunnel since August 5 when the mine collapsed. They have been eating spoonfuls of food every 48 hours and using a backhoe to scrape or dig for water. A 26 inch diameter lifeline tunnel has been dug to send communication lines, oxygen and glucose tablets. It will be widened to start sending food once the miners digestive systems have been reset.

    Check out the schematic drawing-WARNING, if you are at all claustrophobic it might make you hyperventilate....

    God bless these miners and their families. Four months would be a horrible amount of time to wait for rescue. I can't imagine what this will do to these men emotionally.

    Oh My Land-story update

    They think they will have them above ground by next week!!!

    "Copiapo, Chile (CNN) -- With 160 meters to go until the Plan B drill reaches 33 trapped miners, a breakthrough to the men may be imminent.
    Then what?
    At Camp Hope, the makeshift tent city where hundreds of family members are living, widespread celebrations will likely break out as the miners' loved ones receive news they have waited for more than 60 days to hear.
    But despite any euphoria, the rescue operation will be entering its most dangerous phase for the men."

    Ok, so Plan B team drilled the escape shaft down to the miners today. The team is from Cypress, TX. Go Texas!

    Unless they determine that they need to reinforce the shaft with metal, the next step is to send a doctor down to the miners to determine the order they should be rescued.

    My question is: have you seen the rescue capsule? I about started to hyperventilate just looking at the pictures of it.

    H*ll No!
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    I would need valium sedation to deal with getting in that capsule for a slow 2 miles travel out of the ground... but then again I am not a miner that is accustomed to small enclosed spaces. If I was, though, I would be rejoicing the whole time I was in the capsule... singing and rejoicing and so happy to get out.

    Originally, I was thinking more about the doctor who was going to have to be sent down there. But I have heard that the doctor is some kind of military special ops guy, so I'm sure he/she's pretty hard-core.

    Picture of the yellow capsule that carried out the nine Pennsylvania trapped miners in 1992. I hope the miners can be rescued soon.

    Tunnel and capsule are completed

    They have had 4 test runs. They have decided the order of evacuation as well-A doctor and a miner will be lowered into the area where the miners are first so they can evaluate each man before he enters the tube. The first to be rescued will be those who are the most technically sound in case they need to aid in their own rescue. The last will be those who are emotionally the strongest.

    Some of the miners are showing signs of heart issues, diabetes and anxiety.

    Naturally.

    God Bless these men and those who have created the rescue plan!!!

    It should take a minimum of 33 hours to get everyone out...perhaps more. The trip is 15 minutes to the surface, with a round trip of about an hour.

    I would need a lot of anxiety and sleeping pills. It must be just awful, how are they using the bathroom? Not being able to take a shower all that time. At least they get to talk to their family members. I just hope they are able to keep sane, and are out of there soon.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.
