The 33 trapped Miners in Chile

 This is a story about how miners in the country of Chile, South America, were trapped under ground for 66 days. Finally Jeff Hart from Colorado operated a drill that was able to reach the miners and give them a way out, the only thing left to do is for the people to come out. Also the President and the people who work from the outside to pull these people out are still wandering if they will try to pull the miners out through unreinforced rock or if they will use a steel pipe so the miners don’t have any problems escaping and getting out alive. These miners are about 2,041 ft. below the ground. I think this is remarkable that the miners were able to survive underthe ground for 66 days. Also is amazing that with the technology today we are able to rescue miners that get trapped under like these people did and basically get out, I don’t think this would have been possible 10, 15, or 20 years ago.
