Footage Released Of Chilean Miners

We can now see first hand the 33 Chilean miners still trapped underground.

Rescue workers have released footage taken inside that mine.

The miners could be seen playing cards and singing the Chilean national anthem.

Fresh clothes, medicine and games are being sent down a 2,300 foot bore hole the diameter of a grapefruit.

The government has asked NASA and Chile's submarine fleet for tips on survival in extreme, confined conditions, and are looking to send them space mission-like rations.

A second narrow bore hole has been drilled, dedicated to channeling drinking water to the miners and keeping communications flowing.
