Hello Lotters, This is one of the risk having a job who has big risk to do and that is to either dig, shovel and pick up rocks under tons of rock,meaning underground. normally mines could be done in a mountain or something. but this is really dangerous. now, the accident had made them trap for months, one of them was about to retire. if there was no such technologym, they could have died down there. There was a similar incident here in the Philippines. although the reason why the miners trap is because of the landslide and strong floods that trap them inside, they were rescued too but some died. As for the chile miners, it doesn't matter how long it takes, they are being rescued one by one. they are blessed, they'll spend Christmas with their families after all. don't you feel happy with these news? my mom is.

I see they have gotten the last one out this morning. It sure turned out better than I expected. I am so happy for all of them and their families. I cannot imagine being buried alive like that.

I heard wrong, sorry, they still have a bunch to go. All I had heard was the news flash and they made it sound like they had finished getting them out.

It is great, all my family is in front of the tv, my mom even cried when she saw the first miner coming up, It is very nice to see the the humans are trying to help others. today is a day that will come in to the history not just of the Chile history, but the history of the entire world, as the day the world enjoy together to save the live of those miners.

I am super glad , Knight. I even told my hubby that it is going to be a wonderful Christmas for these miners and their respective families because they will finally be out of the tunnel.Perhaps, this is going to be the best and greatest Christmas gift they will ever receive...:) Imagine staying down there for almost three months without the comforts of normal life. Even the food they ate took an hour before it could reach them... It was a difficult ordeal for both miners and their families.Those three long months of not knowing what to wait must have felt forever for them...Finally, their ordeal is over. God is good.:)

I was also relieved to open my browser and see this as the top news. There was picture of a reunion of either a girlfriend or family member that was really touching...:)

God must have heard and answered their prayers thus granting them extension of life to see the sunlight again. It is a real miracle looking at the situation and the length of time they were trapped. It happened in my country a few years back where a condominium collapsed and the whole occupants were killed in that incident. Tears of joy must have flooded the streets of Chile and from their families for these unsung heroes. Praise the Lord.

my wife was praying while watching on tv and when the first miner came out she was clapping her hands and so is our son. she is saying Thank you Lord and was very happy for that event even she does not know this people. i too am happy that in this times in the way that technology truly made a difference. this is one of those things that you can say nothing is impossible, anything is possible just have faith.

I watched the first three being rescued and I cried especially when the first one came up and his little boy who had been waiting all excited burst into tears as he hugged his father…It did my heart good to see these men alive and hopefully all fit and well. I agree with you LetranKnight, God bless them all and their families, I hope they get the rest out safely...

Just think what a wonderful Christmas this will be for them as it will come fresh on the heels of a miracle & the feeling of being blessed to be alive.
