I can think of nothing more harrowing than the psychological terror that 33 men trapped in a mine in Chile are currently being subjected to. They are stuck in a collapsed mine 500 meters below ground. Rescue efforts are said to take as long as four months - Christmas - to complete. In spite of which, the men have sent video footage to the surface in which they sing and give thanks for the efforts of the rescuers. This video from an English news broadcast outlines the rescue options.
On a separate note, and not to belittle the deeply felt sentiment of the above...the tie that the newscaster is wearing at the open of the broadcast is a doozy.
