    The recent rescue of 33 Chilean miners is a testament to their bravery while being trapped underground for 69 days, but it’s also a prime example of why mining ranks as the second scariest job of 2010. The fear of confined spaces is one of the most common phobias, and there are few worse places for a person suffering from claustrophobia to be than a narrow mine shaft deep underground. Take into account that the Driefontein Mine in South Africa is a world-record 2.5 miles deep, and it’s clear that working as a miner can be a pretty scary experience.
