    Good pt by Karl Penhaul an outcome that people hoped for but were afraid to dream of.

    That looks like a long and unnerving ride through the tunnel, but like Gary Tuchman has said this evening, it was reassuring as the capsule went down the to mine and returned to the surface each time. Even so. And I'm glad that I was able to see the miners who came to the surface this evening. Each reunion of a miner with his family was joyous to behold.

    Thanks Anderson, et al for the wonderful coverage of this amazing effort. Thanks also for sticking with the rescuers to the end ... those of us who are sort of stressing that can relax! Viva Chile! Viva everyone! Finally, good news on a major scale...we all need that once in a while.

    I am not a very religious person but this is one of Gods true miracles. What a tremendous amount of human strength. Each & every rescue was heart warming.

    I am from kansas and have been living in Chile for the last two years. I can hear the cars honking outside my apartment. This is an incredibly nationalistic country and they really come together for events like these. Usually its for soccer, but this mining event is a nice change!

    Why were so many rescue workers sent down? I thought the plan was originally just two.

    Such a feel good , miraculous story! These men are truly inspirational!! Your coverage has been exceptional-I don't get tired of watching and hearing the stories!

    Jo Ann, I'm trying to let the glow of that effort stay with me as long as possible...it's inspiring, esp. when one encounters the inevitable clash of egos again. I wish we had more stories like this so we could 'hold the thought' a little longer, into our everyday lives! If we could have that vision as a strong part of our daily reality, it might help shape how we all behave...and the world could take a turn for the better!

    This is the way it should be. Everyone working together. Isn't it wonderful. The whole world was pulling for these men and the outcome is fantastic. Great coverage from Anderson and CNN as usual!

    Hi Janis,
    Those sunglasses are really going to save their sight. I heard that one of the miners had to have surgery as he had ulcers on his eyes. I still can't get over people being buried in a mine for 69 days.

    It will be a great relief to see the last rescue worker safely reach the surface.

    Thank you for showing the return of the rescue workers. It will be even more of a relief to know that everyone is above ground! 🙂

    I watched them all. Once I saw #1 last night I realized no one was more important than any other, they all deserved to be seen so I have watched everyone come out! I am a paramedic so I wont stop watching until all rescuers are out as well. Good news for once!!

    Amazing!!!!!! The 33 were able to survive because of their love for life and their faith in God

    does anyone know how the last rescue worker will get in the capsule and secure it?

    October 13, 2010 at 10:22 pm |
  19. Soledad Gomez

    Today proves that miracles do still happen. All of those miner should have never of made it all out alive and well. God was really on there side this time... Chile does not abandon their people.

    The rescuers didn't have to get all belted in. Sure makes it faster for them.

    Hi Anderson.
    This has been the most emotional story I have every watched. I cried every time a miner was brought up. I cried as if I knew each and everyone of them. All I can say is God is good.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:22 pm |
  22. Denise

    Anderson, praise the Lord for this miracle. Can we know the names of the 5 rescue workers that chose to go down to save the 33? They deserve our praise and thanks!

    Excellent coverage. so hard to quit watching and do my work. God Bless all.

    The rescuers have helped each man into the pod and shut the door securely. How will the last rescuer get out without anyone helping him into the pod?

    What a moment for the miners, their families, all those in the rescue and the nation of Chile!

    I have never been so riveted to the television–and because of such wonderful news.. Such an emotional and happy time not only for the families, for Chile, but for everyone the world over who were praying for a happy conclusion to the ordeal of these miners.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:22 pm |
  27. Andrew

    Just wondering how the last rescue worker can strap himself in and close the door?

    This is a perfect example of how caring and loving each other, can produce miracles like this.
    Thanks to you Anderson, for all that you do. That's why I watch AC 360. You truly care about people, and it shows. Keep up the fantastic work!!
    I thank God for ongoing miracles!!

    When that first rescuer went down, I thought he had to be the bravest man I have ever seen

    We can see and feel how the whole world was drawn into the hope that all will turn out well...and it certainly did..What does it take for the good people of our planet to come together .May this be a fore shadowing of only good things to come...

    I haven't been able to turn this off!! I am so relieved that they got all 33 miners up! And I agree with Micheal, they deserve some much needed time off and a couple of bonuses!!

    So many nightmares in the world, it's wonderful to add this rescue to all the beautiful things in this world!!

    I am overwhelmed. I have kept tabs on the situation since it was first reported. I am amazed that the time to drill to the miners was lessened by almost 3 months or more. I am amazed they they pulled everyone single miner out in less than 24 hours.

    I too am curious about how the last will latch the door.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:21 pm |
  39. Bob

    QUESTION: What will they do with the hole when all the miners and rescuers are out of the mine?

    Will they seal it off, explode it and if they close it, how will they do it???

    Thank you, Anderson, for focusing on the remaining brave men still coming up from the mine! It isn't over until they, too, are safe!

    The rescue workers are heroes too. They chose to go down into this "hell". Please tell us their names and a little about each one.

    Such a blessing and a miracle we have just witnessed. Sure, technology was involved, but someone else made this happen.

  47. Travis

    I can't believe what I am seeing. This is so spectacular that all of these men have survived. What will happen to the mine when all of the men are evacuated?

  48. Ekaloa

    These rescue officers are true heroes in evry way one can explain, Anderson, please acknowledge these heroes too on your CNN hero night, at least mention their heroic actions.

    I was glued to the T.V. & cried profusely for these strangers who I did not know anything about.Then something wonderful happened, a CNN journalist named Karl Penhaul, wow!What an amazing reporter he was throughout this entire event.I couldn't wait to hear him and learn so many details about each miner as they were being rescued.What an exciting, charismatic, and passionate reporter Karl is.My hat is off to CNN and their outstanding reporting and staff.Karl should be given the highest award for his reporting of this rescue – Just a suggestion! 🙂
