While the first Chilean miner is expected to be breathing fresh air by this afternoon they are all expecting to profit from their ordeal – Hollywood style.
The 33 Chilean miners, who have become international celebrities, have been trapped inside a mine 2,300 ft in the earth for over two months and are expecting to be freed between today and tomorrow. As they whittled away the days and hours they also worked on a plan to cash in on their fame.
It is being reported that the group drafted a contract to not seek individual profit from the ordeal but rather an all-for-one, one-for-all approach, whereby they would all share in the proceeds from their ordeal. They have a lawyer; they have a book deal and a hope to never work in a mine again.
