Tragic, sad outcome

Rest in Peace, guys. Let's hope the media circus we have seen here lends respect to all those involved in this complete tragedy. Let's hope the families find strength to carry on.

I am SO sorry Sagittarian. My heart goes out to you and all the families in this tragedy. I guess hopes were high after the Chilean miracle, so this must have made the situation is even worse.

I think we all forget how dangerous mines can be, even in this day and age and it's not just the risk of collapse miners have to worry about.

Just heard about this from Vegemitevix's blog - such sad tragic news. My heart goes out to the family and friends of the miners.

Yes, this is so horribly sad. I think Laura is right in what she says about hopes being raised. It is very rare for there to be survivors.

I mourn with you and your countrymen. Everyday working heros sacrificing their lives to earn a living and provide for their families and it comes to this. I am heartsick.

Terrible news. You can see the quiet nobility of the miners in the video. What happened to the other son of the safety manager? Very saddened at this tragedy.

This desperately sad news.
The unfortunate reality is that the Chilean rescue was a rare event that raised so many people's hopes.

My heart goes out to every one in your small, close knit country.

Thanks so much everyone, I really appreciate it.

Margaret- my friends son was one of two miners who escaped, but tragically his other son was trapped in the mine. That same man is burying his father today. Some people have been handed a bad deal,eh.
