They are out.

For 14 days 2 miners were trapped in a mine at Beconsfield. Here is some background info.
40 kilometres north of here is the Beaconsfield Gold Mine. On April 25th a 2.1 Richter earth tremor caused a rockfall 1 kilometre underground, leaving 14 men barely escaping, and 3 missing. 1 has since been found dead.
Yesterdaythe two miners were finally brought to the surface.

Thanks to Geoff the picture and information.
