Facing a 15 minute ride with a chance of being trapped in that coffin, inside of a solid rock tube, could cause clausterphobia even in a miner.

Remember that little girl in Texas trapped in a back yard well, back in the 80s? Smae thing we all watched it live, I think she was rescued on Friday night, grown men at the bars were crying.

Right!

I would need a face mask and some soothing music, or a interesting funny book to listen to on the way up.

Anyone know if Fox is going to give full coverage to the rescue? They have it on now, but are breaking away.

Thanks for the great screen shots guys. Our hearts and prayers go out to the miners and their families. What an absolutely incredible story and a tribute to the human spirit.

I look forward to this misery ending for those miners and thier families being reunited. As for the man with the mistress and wife waiting, I hope he manages to stay alive beyond getting out of the hole.

Americans drilled the whole with an American drill from PA. They got the job done 2 months earlier than expected. No manyana.

The Chileans appears to be turning this into a major photo-op. Americans are gone now and the sense of urgency is lacking.

I hope the Americans are available to make sure this is done correctly.

It’s interesting that the expertise of so many Americans is useful in pulling this off.

Thanks. I think my problem is that it is still daytime TV here. ABC is Oprah with Ryan O’Neil and Ally McGraw.

MSNBC was the Ed Show ... Ed Schultz!!!

They are going to do test runs first.

Actual rescue attempt won’t start for about 2 hours.

Watching on Fox. Don’t like to see them whacking at something inside the capsule with a hammer and chisel!

I thought they had done the test runs earlier. Sure looks like they are having some problem with all this hammering and such.

It won’t be empty. A medic is going down. I will be empty once he steps out though!

Could these networks (Fox, CNN) put any more crap on the screen to block the pictures? Between the scroll across the bottom and the other text, there is little room left for the actual pictures.

Looks like whoever designed it wasn’t really thinking.
the attachment should have been external.

First trip down will be empty, then back up, then the medic goes down.

I agree the cable should have an external attachment.

We can rely on FReepers for commentary on what we see - surely more informative than 90% of the TeeVee spew.

Per the minister who spoke a few minutes back, they’re rigging it for TV, then they’ll make a test run. Hoisting it up is part of the early rigging process. Figure about an hour and a half now. Before the serious stuff starts.
