Reports state that since proper communication with the miners is practically impossible at this stage, the authorities have managed to drop a camera through a drilled hole, to capture the status of the miners. The Health Minister of Chile, Jaime Manalich, said that the trapped miners are ‘reasonably’ in a healthy condition.
One of the miners, in order to convey message on everyone’s behalf said (on the camera), “We’ve organized everything really well down here. This is where we entertain ourselves, where we have meeting every day, where we make plans. This is where we pray.”
The miners have been trapped since August 5 and have to wait for four months more to come out of the trap. They are receiving food supplies as well as anti-depressants.
