A couple of months before rescue!

How do you keep busy for that long? 33 of them in a space the size of a small flat. I hope they get on with each other.

They have no option but to get on with each other.

God speed the drill.

They are now saying at least 4 month before rescue. Now that really is long time in the same room.

I guess it is now incumbent on the rescuers to drill more (and if possible) bigger holes to provide ventilation, water, food, power and communications. One smallish hole - I've seen it reported as the size of a grapefruit - is not going to be enough.

Rescuers plan to send narrow plastic tubes down the narrow borehole already drilled with food, hydration gels and equipment that will allow them to communicate with relatives - including cameras and microphones.

It's a long time until you realise the alternative would last for all eternity!

Might sound a bit grim, but it would all depend on how deep future archaeologists dug!!

I just hope they get them all out safely.
It's a horrendous situation to be in.

They have connected then up to the surface by phone but have decided not to tell them it may be December before they get out.

If the drill breaks they will only tell them after it has been repaired.

Plan B?
