Diary of Agustin Ramirez
It's been two months since I last saw Dad, and hopefully tomorrow I'll see him again. For 33 days teams have been working hard, drilling a hole in the ground in a bid to save Dad and the other 32 men there. They have drilled a long shaft that is 66cm in diameter and extends 700m underground to the men. The intention is to drop a special cage down the shaft. The cage is large enough to hold one man, so Dad and the rest of the workers will be lifted from the ground one by one.
We've been camping at Camp Hope for a week. Although there is a cloud hanging over us, everyone tries to keep each other in good spirits. I have to get a good night's sleep tonight, tomorrow is a big day and I will need all my energy.
