Working late shifts and my pattern of sleep is completely deranged, however just tuned in to BBC and watching the medic go down the narrow shaft to reach the trapped Chilean miners. I can't imagine the claustrophobic feeling inside that capsule under extreme heat, but he is certainly one brave medic. He will be very experienced of course but still it must require guts!
On the ships we had training to reach trapped or injured crew members in the water tanks which was nerve wrecking enough and required a lot of organisation and team effort. So I can only have a sense of what what is going on. To be all those meters under the surface...
It is quite emotive watching the local miners and family members and even the Chilean President cheering them along and singing their national anthem. I believe there is a twenty minute wait.
To everyone in Camp Hope, my prayers and best wishes, hope all goes well.
