    One More to go!!...Oh the tears are coming again 🙂 ...It's fitting he is the last one to leave, he was the first rescuer to reach the men! I am so happy that he is having someone to talk to 🙂

    What an amazing bunch of guys !!!!
    I'm watching the last rescuer down there alone and thinking, that's gotta be scary.

    Could the miners use the fiber optic connection Chad Myers described to communicate with their loved ones. That would go a long way to boost their spirits.

    Also the pt by Dr. Kimberly Manning that the miners could move around in the tunnels, that must save their lives and health.

  12. Emily

    just watching this, I can't believe that the miners were in there for 69 days. Wow, this is quite the perspective.

    What an amazing day!. You don't have to speak the language to know what is being said. It is a universal feeling of love for family and friends and relief that their long ordeal is finally over. Good luck to all in your recovery and God Bless.

    Big props to the rescuers. God bless them for doing this kind of work.

  22. Tony

    Emily, you gather 33 guys, and you'll find a guy with 2. It's human.

    They'll work it out.

    I'm loving this webcam video of Manuel just waiting. Awesome.

    Thanks very much, Anderson, for the ongoing coverage of the rescue. It's great that you stayed with the rescuers. They are heroes for sure, as they went down by choice.

    Thank you! Thank you! for covering the recovery of the "Rescue Workers" that voluntered to assist the Miners in their recovery. God Bless you for finishing the story.

    We watched the CNN news production of the rescue along with 50 others at the Royal Canadian Legion, Sir Sam Hughes Branch 67, Lindsay, Ontario, Canada tonight as the last miner was brought to the surface. Our entire Legion burst into cheers and applause, and yes, a few tears. Praise God they are saved. Mining is a dangerous profession, and these men all seemed to embody the spirit of miners throughout the world. God bless them all, and God bless their families and rescuers.

    Wow Congratulations Chile, am happy to see all 33 were rescued safely! That is simply awesome! Did you know this: 10/13/10=33 miners rescued. They felt there was a significance to the date.

    As a Canadian new junkie I sit here and watch many events unfold on TV and I have to say we (other countries) could learn alot from the Chillean Government and how they handled this situation...... Just sayin'

  28. Trish

    I am SO impressed and happy that the President has remained to greet all of the rescue workers.
    And thanks just now for confirming that the last rescue worker is indeed Manuel Gonzalez.

    I continue to well up with tears of joy and pride; I'm not from Chile, but I am a human being. We should all be proud of this effort, and remember it always!!

    I don't know about anyone else but my heart is pounding as I watch it go down this last time.

    Anderson, I'm a proud chilean, I live in Boca Raton Fl and I want to thank you for showing everything that is happening in my Country. The translation is perfect, really good job!!!

    Had the goose bumps every time each one came up...wtg ev1 for the rescue...

    Exactly what Gary said.The first miner came up at 11.05, I think,almost to the minute, cos the pod just left for Mr. Gonzalez.

    October 13, 2010 at 11:10 pm |
  34. Emily

    That is the one that was telling each of miners how he was going to get into that capsule; and what it was going to be like. I remember someone told him last night when he went down to "think that he's at the beach". He really is a HERO. (All five of them are)

    October 13, 2010 at 11:09 pm |
  35. Joey

    This experience has shown the world what we as people can achieve by working together. Luis Urzua displayed true Heroism, the rest of the miners showed real valor. And everybody's acts of true faith really inspired us here at home. My thanks to the rescue workers. Can't wait for the book.

    Congratulations to all Chileans. Not only did they accomplish the impossible, they did it with dignity. No hysterics, no screaming, no look at me, the recovery should be mandatory viewing for every school age child in the US.

    Will the tunnel and area be sealed off some way?

    please stay on the last rescuer.. we have been waiting hours to see how the last guy gets into the capsule and comes up, without anyone to help him

    Thanks to all the dedicated and brave rescue workers who risked their life to go into the mine. They are all safe. "JOB WELL DONE "

    @ Nancy and everyone 'more regular doses of similar inspirations would be good for our diets'
    So true! so true!
    Being witness to this -good- news.

    This is just amazing! Who would have ever thought after 17 days these men were alive? This is a miracle!

    That rescue capsule looks pretty beat up.

    October 13, 2010 at 11:08 pm |
  43. Lori

    It would be really neat to have the mine area, where they were trapped, preserved and opened as a national monument for visiters.

  44. Renee

    This makes me wish I was a multimillionare, I mean the 10,000 is nice but if I had the money I'd give each of them a million dollars just for being the most courageous and inspiring men of all time. It's nice, for a change, to watch a news story with not only a happy ending but an inspiring one. It's a nice change from the regular news which is so depressing! Best of luck and the greatest happiness for the rest of your lives guys!

    October 13, 2010 at 11:08 pm |
  45. Tony

    Yep, first rescuer down, last up. He's got the right stuff. He must.

    Thank you CNN for around the clock coverage, these moments will be something I will remember always!

    One more rescuer to go. I wonderful how he must be feeling at this moment that everyone else is on the surface.

    One more to go! This is great.

    Thank you CNN for giving us the opportunity to see this rare event live as it happens. These men showed thru patiences they are true heroes. Hopefully others will learn some patiences from these brave soles. Thank God for all the rescuers. May God Bless them All.
