How Many Miners Have Been Rescued In Chile
How Many Miners Have Been Rescued In Chile – As of now, 31 of the 33 miners that were trapped underground in a caved in copper and gold mine have been rescued from their underground prison. Each of the miners had to wear sunglasses ($450 designer sunglasses from Oakley that has the world talking) as they came out of the mine, in order to let their eyes adjust to the sunlight that they hadn’t seen in over two months.
The second miner to be rescued, Mario Sepulveda, was jubilant as he was released from the rescue capsule, punching the air and giving rocks as souvenirs to the rescuers who released him from his personal prison. The national Chilean newspaper, El Mercurio, aptly named him “Super Mario”.
The 33 miners hold the record for longest amount of time spent underground and surviving, coming in with a total of 69 days. Each of the miners has been allowed to hug their friends and family members for a few minutes before rushing them off to nearby medical facilities in order to make sure that they are in good condition.
The president of Chile, Sebastian Pinera, has said that the rescue operation would not stop until each one of the workers had been rescued from the mine shaft.
