Rescue of the Chilean Miners

Rescue of the Chilean Miners

On August 5, 2010, the roof of the San José copper-gold mine collapsed, leaving 33 miners trapped underground. Almost 2 months later they are still trapped, but a plan to free them has finally been put into action. Drilling is currently underway to open up a shaft to the miners through which a metal cage can be let down and the 33 men hauled up one by one. Family and friends, who have set up camp above where the miners are trapped, have high hopes the men will all be out before November.
