They would easily survive five days without food, even without water. Oxygen is going to be the problem.
BTW I don't think this is even the same sort of event as the MSP bridge collapse. One can hardly expect the same order of safety working in an underground coal mine as simply driving across a bridge on an interstate highway.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

They dug a hole a few inches wide and finally reached the area where they believed the miners were located. They finally reached the area around 2am EST. They lowered a camera and microphone into the cavity.
Good news / bad news.
The air quality is very good. / There is no sound or sign of the miners, yet.
