How would you survive being trapped?
Engineers working on freeing the 33 Chilean miners trapped deep underground are hoping to reach them sooner than previously reported. What advice would you give the miners?
The rescue team believes it may be able to get to the miners in two months by widening an existing tunnel.
Workers are due on Monday to start drilling an escape shaft going about 700m (2,300ft) underground - a plan which is likely to take four months to complete.
Relatives of 28 of the miners are suing the mine owners and government inspectors, accusing the owners of safety lapses and officials of negligently allowing it to reopen in 2008 following an accident.
Is it better to know how long it will take to be rescued? Have you ever been in a situation where you have needed help? What helps you through difficult times?
