All 33 miners are free tonight in Chile. Just moments ago, the last miner was brought to the surface and the crowd sang the Chilean National Anthem. Six rescue workers, who went into the mine to help the men get into the capsule, still need to be brought up. We will stay on this story throughout the night to bring you live coverage from the San Jose Mine.
Over more than 22 hours, one by one, each miner was brought to the surface in a specially-made capsule. Each one has hugged loved ones. Some led the crowd in a cheer for Chile. Another dropped to his knees and prayed, while one asked about his dog.
We have a team of reporters on the scene and will bring you every angle of this incredible rescue mission, including the medical angle. Each miner has been taken to a hospital extensive tests. We've learned one of the miners is in the intensive care unit with pneumonia, and two miners need extensive dental surgery.
You'll also hear from Bear Grylls, host of the Discovery Channel's "Man vs. Wild", who's made a career out of surviving in dire conditions. He says the 33 trapped miners are an inspiration for all of us.
And, we'll give you an up close look at the celebrations as each miner was rescued after more than two months trapped under half-mile of rock.
We also have the latest developments in the search for an American man whose wife says was shot to death while they were jet skiing on Falcon Lake, which straddles the U.S.-Mexico border. David Hartley's body has not been found. Just this week, a lead investigator in the case was murdered. His severed head was delivered to the Mexican military in a suitcase. David's wife, Tiffany, said the investigator was "so sincere and so considerate."
