Miners Rescued

Great news, after being stuck in a 1.5m x 1.5m cage, 1km underground for the last two weeks, the two miners trapped at Beaconsfield in Tasmania, Australia have walked out of the pit. This has had blanket coverage here. One miner was killed and his funeral is today. Coming from a steel and mining town, it's been a hot topic here. Great to see them out.
