13 Chilean Miners Were Rescued-Photos

 

 

The photos of the 33 miners who were trapped in San Jose Mine near Copiopo, Chile.

Today is a very happy day!

Rescuers are pulling out the miners who were trapped in San Jose gold and copper mine for 69 days.

They were trapped nearly half a mile  underground.

They were working underground when the mine collapsed and they were trapped.

The rescuers dug holes into the ground to reach them.

The miners were being pulled out in a special capsule.

They have to come out one by one.

So far, 13 miners had ride the capsule out from underground.

I hope that all the other 20 miners will be pulled out safely and everybody will be okay.
