Trapped Chilean Miners FInally Have A Way Out

A rescue plan was offered Saturday to rescue 33 trapped miners in Chile, with rescues planned to start Wednesday.

The Associated Press reported that 66 days after the mine collapsed, a drill was finally able to reach the cavity where the miners were trapped.

USA Today
reported that miners started preparing Sunday for the rescue by taking aspirin to preventing blood clotting during the ascent, and they started a special liquid diet to prevent nausea that may occur from the twisting motions of the rescue capsule.
