Six men have been trapped in a mine for seventeen hours. If they are not brought to the surface soon they may lose their lives. However, rescue operations are proving difficult. If explosives are used, vibrations will cause the roof of the mine to collapse. Rescue workers are therefore drilling a hole on the north side of the mine. They intend to bring the men up in a special capsule. If there had not been a hard layer of rock beneath the soil, they would have completed the job in a few hours. As it is, they have been drilling for sixteen hours and they still have a long way to go. Meanwhile, a microphone, which was lowered into the mine two hours ago, has enabled the men to keep in touch with their closest relatives. Though they are running out of food and drink, the men are cheerful and confident that they will get out soon. They have been told that rescue operations are progressing smoothly. If they knew how difficult it was to drill through the hard rock, they would lose heart.

六个人被困在矿井里十七小时。如果不把他们尽快的表面,他们可能会失去他们的生命。然而,事实证明营救工作非常困难。如果用炸药爆破,震动会使矿井的顶部倒塌。所以救援人员钻了一个洞矿井的北侧。他们打算将这些人在一个特殊的胶囊。如果不是有一层坚硬的岩石下的土壤,他们已经完成工作了几个小时。事实上,他们已经钻了十六个小时,他们还有很长的路要走。与此同时,一个麦克风,这是两个小时以前放下井去,使这些人能与他们最亲近的亲属保持联系。虽然他们已耗尽了食物和饮料,但这些人的心情很好,坚信他们很快就会滚出去。他们被告知救援行动进展顺利。如果他们知道钻透坚硬的岩石,他们会丧失信心。
