Well they say it happens in threes,.After the O'Higgin-Land disaster with 33 miners rescued, we now have another four Miners trapped on the same Continent, Of course those who know everything will dream up the theory that the forthcoming rescue bid will be a piece of piss compared to the last exercise albeit the differing geographical site. No doubt the know how from recent experience can be put to the task for the rescue of these under privileged and under rewarded blokes, working in poor conditions to feather the nests of the Fat Cats. Let us wish them a safe return to their families.
However, you can be sure it will not be long before the next disaster, So don't put the rescue gear in the back of the shed yet.
This just in: Four miners are trapped 500 feet down a collapsed mine in Portovelo, in Ecuador's southwest coastal province of El Oro. The miners are believed to be alive because they were located in an area far enough away from the collapse, though rescuers have been unable to contact them.These poor guys are never gonna get the same enthusiasm as Chile, but hopefully,

No happy ending for the four Ecuadorian miners who were trapped 500 feet below ground in a gold and copper mine, near the town of Portovelo near the border of Peru, just two days after the 33...so sad.
