Big news story here tonight - they've found two miners still alive in the Tasmanian mine collapse! It's wonderful news for their families and I hope rescuers can get them safely to the surface.

News reports are saying they've been talking to them. I'll bet people in the town can't help but think of the tragedy in the U.S. a while back, where reports came that some trapped miners were still alive but it turned out to not be true.

I wonder how they've managed to stay alive. They've been trapped for 5 days with no food or water (unless they took lunchboxes and the like down with them). I can't imagine how they're coping.
