  6. Yes, it's marvelous news!!! The 2 miners were trapped there for a fortnight! Our news have been covering the story since the mine collapsed. Sadly there were 3 miners who were trapped and one of them was found dead about the second day into the ordeal. The reporter who suffered a fatal cardiac arrest at the scene was a renowned 60mins reporter here in Oz. He will be missed:sad:.
     
  7. 2 weeks?! Wow. I'm glad they're out. Sad about the one that died. =(
     
  8. Wow that's amazing. I'm very relieved for their families. My grandfather and many of my family on my mom's side were coal miners. Hard, dangerous work.
