Officials still say they cannot detect any sound in the 1st hole that was drilled, and air samples from the hole that has been bored are too low to be able to sustain life but they are drilling another hole anyway with a bigger drill that can carry a camera and possibly food and water as well anyway. Apparently nearby there is a 1000-foot long exit tunnel that might have more oxygen and they are hoping that the miners got there.

Once the drill with the camera gets in they should be able to tell a bit more.

Hundreds of people were keeping a candlelight vigil in the small town nearby last night.
