Chilean Miners Rescue Live
October 13, 2010 by staff
The first, Florencio Avalos, was released shortly after midnight, wearing helmet and sunglasses to protect his eyes, stayed 69 days without seeing sunlight. With a broad smile, he shook his seven-year-old son and his wife.
The second, Mario Sepulveda Espina, was released an hour later. Even before the capsule reaches the surface back, his screams could be heard enthusiastically. After hugging his wife, he laughed with rescuers handing out stones in memory of his stay at about 700 m underground.
Then he jumped as if to prove he was doing well even before the medical team for not passing his exams.
“I think I was extraordinarily lucky,” he said then in a room designed by the government for interviews. “I was with God and the devil and God took me.” He praised the work of relief: “It’s unbelievable what they have saved us while we were at 700 m depth.”
A third minor Chilean Juan Illanes, followed an hour later.
Then Carlos Mamani, Bolivia’s only group, was released. His wife has lost his helmet, kissing. Sebastian Pinera Chilean President and the First Lady waved flags in Bolivia. Mamani then showed his T-shirt with the Chilean flag and shouted “Gracias, Chile!”
Jimmy Sanchez, 19, the youngest of the group, came out in fifth.
The relief operation is to remove all the miners in about 36 hours.
The 33 men were trapped in the mine when 700,000 tons of rock collapsed on August 5.
CNN and news networks are the most important achievement of a live rescue.
