Chilean miners contemplated cannibalismFebruary 11th, 2011 - 7:33 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Santiago, Feb 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Since their dramatic rescue about four months ago, the 33 Chilean miners have become instant celebrities.
Their stories have been sought all over the world and several entertainment and television outlets have scrambled to tell their stories to the world.
CBS seem to have been able to clear that hurdle because the network managed to get several of the rescued miners for an interview on its hit show “60 Minutes”. The episode will be aired on Sunday.
During the interview, the miners talked about how they contemplated so many things when they realized that there was no way they were going to get out alive. It was not until 17 days after being trapped in the mine that they were found.
The miners say they considered cannibalism and suicide during their wait to be rescued.
They also spoke about their lives after the rescue. All the rescued miners are psychologically sound with the exception of one who was severely affected by the experience. They revealed that they mostly have several medications to take every day and their relationship with their friends and relatives have changed since they came out.
