Yep. Really nice job staying there for a long period of time.
It's really awesome how they managed to stay there for that long
If there were some safety issues going on and the guys agreed a plan to either keep quiet about the details for cash, or tell the world for cash, I say go for it. They shared a horrible experience together and if they can maximise the compensation for it together, as the same group, then all the better for them.
People make thousands for shallow media stories such as which famous person they've kissed etc, so I hope they make many tens of thousands as a group of men who've faced a situation none of us would want to.
Good point Watersoul. I'm for it as well. Who knows, maybe their company would like to be counted in as well. Can imagine they have to be poor anyway and can do with the cash.
I don't think it was faked,though i must admit the timing of their release to coincide with the presidents visit to Europe was a bit suspect when initially they were talking about them maybe being stuck there till Christmas.
It was all good for Chile though,a country rarely (If ever) mentioned on our news,and they certainly made the most of it with anything and everything draped in the countrys flag.
Chile do well on safety about miner.China should study to Chile.
Chinese newspaper have been focused on it,and serious propose to public and government.
I can't imagine being trapped down there for so long, and I'm sure there were many issues with the group itself, as well as being able to stay alive and healthy. It's good that nobody suffered too much, but I wonder at the cost of saving them all, and if the government ever at one point though, hm, this is spending way too much, even though the coal mine company might have paid for everything. Also, I do realize that it would be immensely bad press if the company did absolutely nothing for these miners after their negligence caused the miners to be in that situation in the first place. Anyways, glad for these miners, and hope their newfound fame and wealth won't go to their heads, though it looks like from the looks of the pact they made tht they have a pretty good head on themselves.
