The drama of 33 trapped Chilean miners continues with the release of the first significant video footage taken thousands of feet below the ground. A camera was sent down through an emergency shaft being used to deliver food, water and other basic necessities. Footage of the miners was then broadcast to family and friends who saw their loved ones sending them messages and chanting, “Long live Chile, and long live the miners!”
