London, Oct 24 (ANI): It seems rescued Chilean miners are finding it tough to live a normal life, with many of them still grappling with mental and physical problems.

One of them rescued after more than two months trapped underground was hospitalised again last week after suffering a panic attack, reports the Daily Star.

Doctors diagnosed Edison Pena, 34, who broke when he was about to speak at a party honouring the 33 survivors, with severe anxiety.

Now, health officials are concerned about the rest of the freed mine workers.

Some of them are still seen wearing the sunglasses given to protect their eyes when they were rescued from the copper and gold mine ten days ago.

Ariel Tacona says his vision is still severely impaired.

Juan Illanes and six others have refused to speak to journalists as they come to terms with their ordeal. (ANI)
