Chilean Miners Rescued

The 33 Chilean miners, trapped in a mine for 69 days, were rescued late Wednesday night.
It took around 22 hours to get all 33 miners out of the mine successfully through an engineered rescue shaft, MSNBC said.
The scene of the rescue was extremely emotional and it took each man 15 minutes to reach the surface from 2,000 feet below ground, the Los Angeles Times said.
Almost all of Chile was captivated by the rescue and Chilean President Sebastian Pinera was at the scene to welcome each miner back above ground, MSNBC said.
