Miners Trapped Saved by Mobile Call 1km Underground
27 gold minors in Ballarat were saved today by a call from a mobile phone 1km underground. A land slide blocked the main entrance to the mine, leading miners to escape via a caged bucket from crane through a ventilation shaft in the mine. I just want to know one thing. Who is the mobile phone service provider that delivered such unbelievable reception? Optus and Telstra would have field day in marketing promotions if it was they who delivered such a service.
