Nearly a year on, where are 'Los 33' now?

Lawuits, unemployment and psychological problems blight the lives of the most famous miners in the world who have struggled with fame and life outside the Copiapo mine.

CHILEAN MINERS TRAPPED for over two weeks in a mine have sent a message to the surface saying they are still alive. The message reads in English: “We are well inside the shelter.”

The miners have been trapped underground since the collapse of the main access route on 5 August.

They attached the hand-written note to a drill which rescuers were probing the mine with.

But, it could take months to reach the men who are trapped about 700m (2,300 feet) underground.

Chilean president Sebastian Pinera visited the mine yesterday and said that all efforts would be made to rescue the men:

It will take months to get them out. It will take time, but it doesn’t matter how long it takes, to have a happy ending.

Food, water, and medical supplies will be passed into the mine to the men, but they face serious psychological challenges if it takes the time estimated to get them out.
