A year after their dramatic rescue, Chilean miners suffering financially and psychologically

A year after their miraculous rescue, many of the 33 rescued Chilean miners are still suffering and say that they feel abandoned, both financially and psychologically.

After being trapped underground for over two months, many of the miners suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and don't foresee being able to return to work for some time.

Jonathan Franklin, contributor for The Daily Beast, recently published a book, "33 Men," about the entrapment of the Chilean miners and their lives post-rescue. Franklin joins Ali Velshi on American Morning today to discuss how the miners are holding up both mentally and physically and to explain how the Chilean government is responding.
