Bore hole for miners in Chile

As most of you know, there are 33 Chilean miners trapped 2,230 feet underground. That's about two Eifel Towers, and it's going to be a few months before they're rescued. In the meantime, the necessities of life are being sent down to the miners through a 3-inch bore hole. This simple graphic/cutout from Newsweek provide some perspective. [Newsweek]
