Rescued from a Chilean mine


Over two months have passed since the August 5th collapse of the San Jose mine near Copiapo, Chile, when 33 miners were trapped 700 meters (2,300 ft) below ground. The men were kept alive over that time by supplies delivered through narrow holes drilled down to them, and kept hope through video conferences with family – until last night, when the first of the 33 miners was successfully lifted to the surface in a specially-designed rescue capsule. Friends and relatives, many of whom had camped nearby for months, slowly let their cautious optimism become joy as they were reunited with their loved ones. As of this writing, at 9:30 pm, Eastern time, all of the 33 men have now made it safely to the surface. (49 photos total)

It’s wonderful what happened in Chile. From the President to the last chilean peon worked side by side untill all the miners are pulled from the guts of the mountain.
You can see the difference when an intelligent and hardworking President surrounds himself with professionals who know what they do and takes the political risk to appear in the same place, instead of relegating if that fails .. Grande President Pinera

NOTE: THE CHILEAN MINE RESCUE HAS BENEFITED FROM LATEST WORLD TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS HELP FROM US NASA EQUIPMENT AND CHINA’S LONGER AND STRONGER STEEL CABLES.
