All we have left is hope, we are hoping for a miracle.

We have to keep in mind that there was an explosion that consumed oxygen, that other contaminants are present in the atmosphere inside the mine, and that the rescue effort is being done carefully to ensure there is not another explosion.

There is an explosive mix of methane gas and it is very dangerous.

We hold out hope but we have to be realistic. With the atmosphere and the risks and with time passing, everything is running against us.
