    Diana Allen, that's probably where the leaders came into play, don't you suppose?

    I'm interested to see how the last rescuer gets into the Fenix. I wonder if they'll leave the camera on?

    Please remember, CNN is not responsible for the footage – it is being provided by the Chilean authorities (who have done a wonderful job providing amazing access to all the events – even within the mine) and is being carried by all the news networks worldwide.

    Hi ! I'm a chilean living in Miami,USA.
    I just want to say THANK YOU to all the American People for your prayers and support to this rescue event. We know that we received a lot of help from USA. Represented by some hard worker that traveled from far away to our country to help, to the people from NASA, etc. This coudn't be be done so perfectly without their help. God Bless America ! THANKS, THANKS, THANKS. ... Carlos M.

    I've heard that the mining company was supposed to have installed a ladder for escape, but never did. Kind of a downer if that's true. Do you know if the mine owners are some of the people standing with Chile's President?

    I am so grateful that CNN is covering this story!
    I was surprised more networks were not. Finally, a little equilibrium by reporting live on a positive story. Remarkable lesson on the dedication of the families in getting a response from the government and faith/strength/solidarity of the miners. Surprised there is not an easily found fund for donations to support these families.

    Nancy, it has to be very inspirational to you too! Hang in there (easier said than done, I know full well.)

    I wonder what the contrast is with WWII submarines? They were hot, damp, smelly, no fresh food, a very cramped.

    Most people who are trained for situations like this are in a controlled environment. These brave men weren't and they had no idea if or when they would be rescued . I hope that much is learned from the miners. Maybe their survival stories will help save the lives of many miners who get trapped.

    I hope that the media is going to leave them all alone when they go home. It's really going to be an adjustment for them. I hope that the media will give them their privacy and space.

    What an example–combining tragedy with miracle–these miners, rescuers, and the President of Chile are for the whole world to see and never forget. God bless them all/may they and their families heal and never see the inside of the mines again.

    IMPORTANT QUESTION: WHERE ARE THE MINE OWNERS AND OPERATORS? WHY HAVENT WE SEEN THEM OR HEARD FROM THEM?

    God bless all of the miners and the people who helped to make this a victorious outcome...may we in the US learn from this to help keep our miners safe

    33 miners, 33 days to do the shaft, 10/10/13 = 33, Jesus was known to have died at the age of 33?

    The people doing the most dangerous jobs are the ones getting the worst pay. That is just so wrong!

    This has been an outstanding rescue event! I just wish that all of us here in the United States can learn and use this as an example on how a government and our diversity should work to accomplish miracles.

    I'm a proud Latina and I'm so happy for our Chilean brothers! This truly was a miracle from God.
    Those miners should really go on vacation with those $10,000 that millionaire gave to each one.

    @rita I too havn't been able to turn away. When I found out they would be pulling them up last night I ran to the TV. My husband said he was scared to touch the remote!

    For a president to standby and personally say welcome to the rescued miners shows he is very responsible. Chile good work. Milly Nigeria

    Carl Penhaul and Gary Tuchman did such a wonderful job. CNN should be proud of their coverage and I'm happy for Anderson that he got be part of a happy rescue compared to his previous experience with our miners.

    What a great ending to a scary story....Was just wondering... is there any important equipment down there? Will it be left there?

  37. Devin LeMaitre

    Wow it's finaly over. Atleast almost over. I remember last night looking at them reaching the surface live. To see them come from the first miner to the third to last rescue workdr coming out of that whole. It is so nice to see it finaly over. They are free no more debating on if they're going to live or not like a few classmates and I did a few weeks ago. Its done its over, they are all free.

    I hope that as they have 3 more rescue workers to bring up to the surface that every one will be fine; physically, emotionaly, and psychology.

    I believe that someone said the Oakley donated the sunglasses. This rescue was so impressive. I will be relieved when the last of the men are topside.
