17 Days: Buried Alive


In October 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped beneath the Earth's surface more than two weeks after a massive underground rockslide - the height of the Empire State Building - literally buried them alive. After their rescue, the miners swore to one another never to reveal what took place so many feet below the Earth's surface - and they have stayed true to that pact - until now. MSNBC presents "17 Days Buried Alive," the true story of the 33 Chilean miners - told in their own words.
