Chilean mine rescue under way

Steel tubing was placed Sunday along the underground path that 33 miners in Chile will travel through after being trapped for more than 2 months, according to CNN.

A powerful drill broke through to the area where the miners are trapped on Saturday, according to the Star Tribune.

The steel tubing is a part of the path that a rescue vehicle named "The Phoneix" will travel through to reach the miners. One by one, the miners will be extracted from the caved in mine, according to the Star Tribune.

The gold and copper mine caved in on August 5th, and the miners report being in good health considering the circumstances, according to Health Minister Jaime Manalich, reports CNN.
