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.

    Will the last rescue turn off TV and shut off the lights? Or bring them up to top?

    The most exciting, fantastic thing I've seen in a long time. A president who made a commitment and saw it through.
    For those who asked, Guillermo Arduino commented that the sunglasses were made by Oakley in the U.S.

    been glued to the tv since this whole incident started, extremely happy for everyone in chile the miners, their families and my hats of to everyone who had a part in the rescue effort, this is truly a testament of what it means to be human. More should learn from the sheer teamwork and efforts of everyone who worked together to save lives. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

    I hope some generous company or goverment will sponsor a well deserved vacation for these men and their wives. They've earned it.

    @Jo Ann,
    "I was also impressed with the support shown by President Pinera for the miners and their families"
    President Pinera was very impressive indeed. I think that he did the people of Chile proud.

    I feel honoured and humbled and grateful to have witnessed this history making Rescue!
    The coverage has been excellent. Please continue to follow these men-as they allow and let us know how they are-as they recover from this incredible situation. Sincerely Lisa

    This rescue was awe inspiring! I'm from Ottawa, Canada, and did watch most of the rescues. Each man has been assisted from the outside of the capsule. How does the last man get out without any assistance to help close the capsule? Is there a latch on the inside?

    October 13, 2010 at 10:18 pm |
  12. Jaime Cifuentes

    People in the entire country are rejoicing of the rescue of these 33 miners. People are gathering at "Plaza Italia" in the Capital Santiago celebrating, a place where people gather to celebrate mostly soccer games. They carry flags with the picture of the 33 miners.

    I think after this is over the capsule is going to be retired and put inside a museum somewhere

    God is great. I can only imagine what the miners and their families went through these past 69 days. I pray that these poor men will never have to go into a mine again unless it is their choice.

    @daniel nunez What a great day for the miners, you and your country. You guys Rock! Men of steel. We applaud you.

    @Nicole the Netherlands, yes last night was a very special experience to share with people from all over the world. Made me feel very connected to others and the whole experience.

    May i please say how incredible Carl Penhaul's reports have been, and how personal he has made them.

    And, also not to be ignored, Gary Tuchman's fine touch on the miners stories as well.

    CNN's non stop coverage has been wonderful too.

    @N ichole- Yes, i was overwhelmed at the number of posting from dozens of countries last night. Anderson and his Team should be proud.

    Thanks for the great coverage. The video being supplied and the show of all emotion is astounding. What a wonderful show of a country coming together. We here in the states could learn a lesson or two. It is amazing what can happen when everyone is focused in the same direction. God Bless.

    what a rush of emotions and anxiety for the past 24 hrs...god bless them all!

    What is the smoke/gas/fog/steam coming up?
    Why is the cable wheel not centred over the hole?
    How are communications connected to the capsule – there seems to be only a hoist cable?

    My HAT off to Chile's President! What a wonderful man, he endured staying there 24-7 making sure that he met all the miners as they emerged! My Hats off to him what a miracle! God is GREAT!

    I did see that, Starr...it was the spirit in which people came together that moved me most of all. People online, people on-site, people everywhere. I so wish that spirit could last longer. (Thank you for your words about Mandy, my dog. For now, 'tragedy is averted'...thankfully. I adopted her old though, and I knew my time with her would not be multitudes of years.)

    It is amazing that all survived.

    Can Anderson ask how the last rescuer will latch the door? It looks like the door has to be latched from the outside.

    Thanks Tony. I know that they are for people that must stay out of the sun. I didn't any specifics however.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:14 pm |
  29. Tony

    Remember, these are specially trained rescuers whose state of mind is well-known and whose health is top-state for the work.

    The miners' states were relatively unknown, so they built in a lot of redundant protections, including the door design (designed by NASA).

    Anderson,

    Thank you for being the only journalist on television airing the return of each of the rescue workers to the surface. These men are also heros and their ascent deserves our attention as well.

    @ Sue R. Canton MI.
    "It's so amazing how this rescue mission was so well orchestrated."
    Absolutely agree with you! Loved that every detail was accounted for and that the Chilean government wanted to show this to the world. The transparency shown here is exactly what should happen during any disaster (manmade or not).

    October 13, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  37. Peter Grain

    Was it really necessary to risk 6 more lives. Couldn't 2 rescue workers have been enough?

  40. Starr, formerly known as vincent

    @Nancy- yes, last night was amazing, not only with the rescues, but did you see how many people from around the world were posting on the AC blog?! (hope nother serious is wrong with you dog)

    @JoAnn- yes, working together...no egos...if only everyday our leaders (and we, the people) could remeber this and work on behalf of humanity every day.

    Hugh Devin, it was that door that was giving me the creeps last night. I will be glad when all are safely up, esp. that last man.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  42. Carolyn

    So great to see everyone safe. However, President of Chile forgot to thank us...United States – the folks that came up with the award- winning escape plan details and the folks to help expedite it.....

    thats what i was wondering: how does the last person get out?

    October 13, 2010 at 10:11 pm |
  44. Tony

    Hugh, you get to watch that for yourself. An obvious guess would that he's been specially trained and that the door is designed to be closed from the inside.

    Miners with minor issues. Nothing major. What a great newspaper headline.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:11 pm |
  46. Sharon Hastings

    I wonder if that battered capsule will be saved for some kind of a memorial. It sure worked hard and the engineering of it all must have been perfect.

    @Nancy in Oregon, " 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."

    Isn't that the truth! I was also impressed with the support shown by President Pinera for the miners and their families.

    Today, the whole world is Chilean!

    I'll breathe a true sigh of relief and thanks once the last heroic rescuer surfaces. Please stick with the live coverage until everyone is safely above ground!

    Anderson, will you be interviewing any of the miners after some time after this?
