What's All That Buzz?

Since August 5th, a group of 33 Chilean miners have been trapped 2,300 feet underground at the San Jose gold and copper mine in Chile. The miners were found on August 22nd, almost two weeks after the roof to the main tunnel collapsed, trapping the miners underground. All 33 miners were found alive, however, it is expected that it will take four months to rescue them. The miners were recently informed of the rescue timeline, and although they took the news very serenely, it is expected that they will soon become depressed and their future sanity is questioned.

What do you think? Should the miners have been told that they will not be rescued until Christmas and that they will have to endure four more months trapped underground? Share your thoughts on our forum.
