Our picture of the week

Posted on May 16, 2014 by

Few stories have captured the attention of the world as much as the plight of the Chilean miners following the 2010 Copiapó mining accident in the Atacama Desert. Famously on that occasion 33 trapped miners were rescued.

Unfortunately, earlier this week a disaster at a Turkish coal mine in Soma has so far claimed 284 lives, with the death toll expected to reach over 300. While it is highly unlikely that there will be any rescues on the scale of the Chilean effort, some miners have been found and rescued.

The scenes that have accompanied the unfolding story and the pictures that have catalogued families’ grief and relief have all been powerful, but none more so than this one of a father greeting his rescued son.
