On April 25 a small earthquake in north Tasmania caused a rockfall that killed one miner and trapped two. Five days later a thermal camrea discovered the two miners, trapped in a safety cage under tons of rock. They'd survived on a cerial bar and by licking water from rocks.

This morning the pair were freed, and they walked from the mine to the ambulance, pausing only to change their tags to show they were going off-shift. Nice one, Brant Webb and Todd Russell.
