Chilean Miners Rescue Live on CNN – The Count To 33

Tune in to CNN right now to watch the rescuing of the Chilean miners Live now.  We will try to update this post if we come to a website that streams the Chilean Miners Rescue live online as well but as of the moment, 9 miners have been rescued among the 33 who have been trapped underground the mine 2 months ago.  It’s a pretty claustrophobic moment for the miners being rescued as they come up to the surface by a steel capsule that is shoulder-length wide but that’s nothing compared to the greatest hope that they can now come up the ground and meet their families.  This capsule takes 50 minutes to recover just 1 miner.

One, by one, everyone at the mine site and the rest of the world watching this joyous moment count to 33.  The photographs taken by professionals and the video captured the priceless moments of these miners and their families.  Each time a miner comes to the surface and get rescued, the siren sounds and the people cheer.
