Nine men trapped with no food or drinking water. In their underground grave the waters were rising and the oxygen vanishing. They faced imminent death from suffocation or drowning. But miraculously, all nine of the miners survived. It took 77 hours to rescue them from a tiny, pitch black chamber of rock, only 3 feet high. This is their terrifying and moving story. The only official story, told in their own voices, with chapters from their wives, girlfriends and mothers who waited up above with increasing desperation. This is a rare, and raw, book. How did these nine men prepare for death? What do you think about as the waters rise, as breathing becomes harder and harder...? This is a nail biting and life-changing account of a nearly tragic disaster.
