All 33 miners trapped underground for the last 68 days have been rescued !
This is truly a blessin’ from God. In some many of these ‘collaped mine’ stories, the miners are almost always found dead, if at all.
I can only imagine the mindset of these men, 33 of them, cramped up in one lil area, its hot and stuffy, livin’ on cans of tuna. One of these men had JUST started workin’ for the mine 5 days before the collapse. Of course, he has decided to find another line of work.
Then to travel that 2000 ft back to the surface of the earth. I wonder what was goin’ thru their minds on that lil trip…
One good thing is that they will now increase the regulation of the smaller mining companies, which often have lower standards. Maybe prevent this from happenin’ again. The next time, the men may not be as lucky. This could have easily been another tragedy
Now that the smoke has cleared and the last man is back on the face of the earth instead of in her bowels, the fun doesn’t stop. These men are now instant celebs. There are hundreds of media requests, offers from book publishers, and even movie and TV producers hollar’n at them already. The Chilean Mining Ministry has even erected a website to collect all the greetings and well-wishes that are comin’ from all over the world.
One thing: God is SURELY wonderful, and all praise be to him.
I’m waitin on the movie…
