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.

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,
