Rescued Chile Miners

After spending 69 days underground after the mine collapsed, the 25 Chile Miners (as of this writing) has been rescued out of 33 miners total.
" The rescue was planned with extreme care. The miners were monitored by video on the way up for any sign of panic. They had oxygen masks, dark glasses to protect their eyes from unfamiliar light and sweaters for the jarring transition from subterranean swelter to chilly desert air."

The first man out was Florencio Avalos, who emerged from the missile-like chamber and hugged his sobbing 7-year-old son, his wife and the Chilean president.

I have been following of this news. Hopefully the remaining miners underground will be rescued soon without any problems.
