New York, Aug 29 (ANI): Chilean authorities are reportedly exploring ways to keep the 33 miners trapped underground safe and out of depression by providing them with different games, music system and projectors.

According to The New York Post, the authorities are figuring out ways to drop iPods or Sony music players and even tiny projectors, so that the miners can watch movies. They have already sent small video cameras to make videos of their ordeal, as well as 33 tiny Bibles.

The trapped miners can amuse themselves with cards, dominoes, dice and a game called Ludo, the paper reports.

Chilean authorities have also advised them to exercise and stay fit and slim, so they can eventually fit through the 35-inch-wide hole that will take them to freedom.

Geoff Workman, a 81-year-old man from Harrogate who spent 105 days living alone underground in a cave in 1963, said that discipline and a daily routine are vital to ensure they come out in one psychological piece.

"I'm sure they are feeling disappointed... but they must stay disciplined: get up every day, wash, do their exercises, as this is what will help them mentally to survive those conditions," he said. (ANI)
