iPods help trapped miners pass the time

From The Australian:

The two trapped Tasmanian miners have been given iPod music players to help them pass the time as workers wait to begin drilling their rescue tunnel.

Brant Webb, 37, and Todd Russell, 34, are now into their eighth day trapped 925m underground in the Beaconsfield gold mine.

Rescuers will begin using a raise borer this afternoon to drill through the final 12m of rock to reach the men, who have been huddled in a steel cage since being trapped by a rock fall on April 25. (more)

I wonder what they’re listening to. I might recommend Enya for such circumstances.
