  • It's awful that it happened, but it's great that they're all alive - they weren't expecting to find them alive. Hopefully they can get to them sooner than Christmas, but at least they will be coming out and going home to their families and not to the funeral home.

  • Sadly I have not been watching the news lately. We have had a family emergency with my 8 year old DD and it has taken up all my time over the past 3 weeks.

    Why would you say you are not surpirised that it happened there?  Mining accidents occur more often in the US than they do in Chile.
