Cheers & Tears in Chile: Join the Live Chat

Tonight, Chile's Camp Hope is living up to its name, and then some. Call it: Camp Success. All 33 miners are out.  Six rescue workers still need to be brought to the surface. We'll bring you live coverage from San Jose Mine where there have been a lot of cheers and happy tears over the past 22 hours.

    Emily, those are $450 stock Oakleys.

    Remember folks, one person is going to be down there alone at the end. Not a miner of course, but still...that's going to be an interesting 30 minute phase.

    Please explain to viewers how the last rescuer worker will be brought up, as he will not have others to assist him in getting into the Phoenix capsule and closing door.

    Goodnight Anderson and everyone.The world was riveted by this extremely emotional rescue by the Phoenix over the past 24 hours [and of course, the 50 days before]. What an amazing show of love, compassion, solidarity, and extreme fortitude.
    After 68 days and nights of such an ordeal, the families can share a little peace tonight.
    Many more struggles to face, let's hope they can endure those too.
    Indeed the world can unite in the face of adversity.

    Sometimes when we are mired in economic distress, political divide, global war, racial divide, global catastrophes, and the loss of our homes and jobs, it is heart warming to see 33 souls rise from the depths of hell and live to see another day. If you happened to watch any of the coverage of the miners making the journey back to the world it is a great blessing, and maybe might remind us of the goodness in the world

    @Emily. Hi Emily. I heard it was Oakley and they blocked out all the bad UV spectrums.

    So happy to experience GOOd news together, for a change. Miracle, by miracle...great way toput it Anderson.

    I thought the Chilian Pres.'s statement to the last miner, "your shift if over" was poinant and very touching.

    That's how I feel, Jo Ann. When people work together, truly together, with the goal of solving a problem (instead of the goal of egos prevailing, etc.) it is just fabulous what can happen.

  20. Janis

    Anderson, how did they get the message on the drill bit? How was it attached? How on earth did it stay on? It's a miracle that it stayed on.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:06 pm |
  21. Emily

    Their 'intestinal fortitude' of everyone truly is remarkable, Nancy. Words cannot describe who much I admire them all.

    Does anyone know what was written on the back of the miners suits they wore out of the mine?

    A wonderful endig to a tragic event! I am so relieved it is almost over. This was an exercise in how to work together to get something accomplished.

    Everyone can learn from this.

    Remarkable to share, isn't it Starr? I had a personal scare today (with my beloved dog), but it's amazing how much last night's experiences helped lift me!

    Anderson, how does the last rescue worker harness himself in and close the capsule. can he do this from the inside of the capsule?

    October 13, 2010 at 10:04 pm |
  30. Janis

    The comments the last worker was giving were so revealing. Their honesty and willingness to share their experiences with us is such a privilege. Viva Chile!

    Good evening everyone. What a happy day. I'm so happy for all the miners, their families, the rescue workers and their whole country. They should be proud of what their country has accomplished.

    Question for a medical expert:

    What will be the effects on the miners of breathing mine dust for 70 days?

    Congratulation to all of the 33 miners and the remaining rescuers.

    He must know how to do it, Emily...remarkable stuff, isn't it? Including the 'intestinal fortitude' of those directly involved and impacted.

    Good evening all...

    Fantastic coverage by CNN the past 24 hours on the rescue of the Chilean miners! This beautiful story was historic and captivated me with the goodness in mankind. I'm so thankful all 33 miners have been rescued. Excellent reporting by Karl Penhaul and Gary Tuchman. Kudos to CNN for staying on this story around the clock. CNN...you are the worldwide leader in news!

    So happy that the 33 miners are out. I hope that the five rescue workers will be out safely. How is the last one going to get into the Capsule alone?
