Rescue for Chilean miners underway

After being trapped in a pitch-dark mine after a cave-in for over two months, 33 miners will finally have a way out Tuesday night, reported the Los Angeles Times.

A missille-like capsule will be lowered in to the mine that will allow one miner out at a time.

According to the Associated Press, the tunnel is almost half-mile-long.

No one has been trapped underground this long and survived.

It will take about 36 hours for all of the miners to be rescued, the Associated Press reported.
