‘Pact of silence’ cracking

Most of Chile’s 33 rescued miners are honoring a pact of silence about the worst of their ordeal, but one has indicated he would talk if paid and another has set the record straight about what didn’t happen.

COPIAPO, Chile – Most of Chile’s 33 rescued miners are honoring a pact of silence about the worst of their ordeal, but one has indicated he would talk if paid and another has set the record straight about what didn’t happen.

Lucrative movie and book deals have been flowing in since the miners’ miraculous rescue on Wednesday after 69 days trapped half a mile underground after a cave-in, and several are now looking to safeguard their financial future.

Miner Omar Reygada said the pact aimed to ensure the real story was told about the days after the Aug. 5 collapse.
