A new video by trapped miners in Chile shows them in good spirits, with shaved faces, wearing new clothes and sleeping on camp beds.

The nearly 23-minute video, made available to families Tuesday, was shown to reporters Wednesday.

In it, the some of the 33 miners are seen wearing red T-shirts, blue shorts with white stripes and calf-length rubber boots.

    They should get international aid to speed up the drilling, plus they should be drilling two holes for safety in case the first hole caves

    They will not ask for international AID, seems to me that they are very capable to do this on their own, like they did for the earthquake back in March, brave and honest people. I would like to see more of this behavior, less asking for help, perhaps doing something more?
