Two miners, trapped 1km (0.62 miles) underground in a Tasmanian gold mine were given iPods today to keep their spirits up. The two miners were found alive in the mine 6 days after the collapse that killed one of their workmates. They are believed to be in good condition and will hopefully be rescued within the next few days. They are currently being fed via a tube into the cage that protected them when the roof of the mine collapsed in an earthquake last week. The current stage of the rescue is precarious as drilling slowly continues through highly unstable earth. Good to hear they're doing OK, hopefully they'll be out within 48 hours. I'm amazed they survived 6 days without food or water trapped so far underground. Gonna be a very happy community down in Tassie when they do finally get rescued - very similar to the Stuart Diver rescue from the Thredbo landslide so many years ago.
