Just caught it! Man, I thought for sure this was going to end badly. Glad I was wrong!

Yep, just talked about it on the evening news. Looks like something may actually have a happy ending, for a change.

Here's some links: Coal Miners are a special breed.

There is going to be a rescue basket lowered down thru an unsupported 30" wide shaft down about 240 some feet. Hopefully there is a lot of rock that was drilled thru and not dirt.

Thank God they are alive! Definitely some good news for this Great Nation, that has suffered through terrible tragedies lately!

These guys are getting serious overtime for all this, right? I know I'd expect a bit of a bonus if I were trapped in such miserable conditions for so long. [:D] (Since they're all ok, it's fair game to joke about it.)
