Chilean Miner Rescue

Many times, the news we cover is tragic.  There are natural disasters, wars and other stories that cause a lot of you to be concerned about the world you'll one day lead.  But today, one headline is different.  As I write this, almost half of the Chilean miners trapped below the surface of the Earth have been rescued.  It's the first really good news we've had in a long time!  We're curious to know what you are thinking as you watch this rescue.  Leave your comments here.

    The minors have done a good job surviving this whole time and deserve the best when they are all rescued.

    What an amazing adventure. How they lived through this ordeal, I am not sure. I can't imagine what they must be feeling like, Praise God, they are ok!!

  9. Dracut

    I think, it is very dangerous and very risky, but atleast families can be whole, and happy again. Reunited and it should feel good.

    I think this is wonderful! I can relate to what the miner's families are going through right now and hope them the best. I pray that the rest of the 33 miners get out safely.

  16. Janelle

    I think its great that they are finally being rescued! I think this experinece probably taught them to love and charish life a lot more.

    I think it is nice for the miners to be able to see their families again and I say thank you god and I'm glad for you to send down your angels to keep these men safe down in the mine.

    The miners have done a good job surviving this whole time and deserve the best when they are all rescued so they can see their family and have fun outside the cave.I hope they are okay and are not sick.

  22. Amanda

    I'm glad they are getting the miners out. It's a very dangerous experience and anything can happen to the people. They should get the miners out as fast as possible so they can see their families and be happy.

    October 13, 2010 at 2:19 pm |
  23. Alyssa

    I think the miners will be happy to get out and see their families again and not be with the same people for a while.

    October 13, 2010 at 2:19 pm |

    The miners might have had fun trapped in the cave...you never know!!

  35. Mimi

    I think it is great the miners are finally getting out and being able to rejoin thier families. I am happy for them to finally get out.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:20 pm |
  36. ANDREW

    I think that it is fantastic that the minors are out. It must be hard for the miners because they have not seen daylight in nearly 70 days.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:20 pm |
  37. Mason

    I think it is very good that the miners are getting out and hopes that the mine does not cave in.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:21 pm |
  38. Megan

    I think that it was unfourtunate for the 33 miners to become trapped. It is extremly fourtunate that all 33 survived and there was no fighting even after close to three months. I hope they all get out safely and I am happy that their familes can sleep without worrying about them.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:22 pm |
  39. Bea

    I am really happy for the families who have had to live without thier son, daughter, or relative that was trapped in the mine. I am glad that after about 2 months that the families can go to sleep not worring about if the minors will make it out safely or if they will ever get out. Thank You Phoneix for getting the minors out safely!!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:22 pm |
  40. Alissa

    Im glad that they are being rescued, because they have been down there for so long. Im also glad the Pheniox did not break down or get stuck.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:22 pm |
  41. Jacqueline

    It is great that the miners are finally being rescued, but they will probably need a therapist from being away from their families, friends, and sunlight. I also hope the Pheonix holds through!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:23 pm |
  42. Heather

    I'm so glad for them because I would hate being underground and not being able to see my family and friends.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:23 pm |
  43. Alex

    I am sooooo glad that the miners are being resued finally. Woday we watched live coverage of the pheonix at school and actually got to see number seventeen being pulled out!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:23 pm |
  44. Emma

    I think that is is great that the minors are safely out, so they can see their family friends, and children again. It was very dangerous but worth it. Thank you!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm |
  45. Jordan

    i'm glad they got out and i think that the all picked that they would be the last ones rescued.

  46. lexi

    it is so great that people in america, on the opposite side of the world from chile, are with such great care for the chilean miners. it is great that they could start the rescuation as early as we did compared to when they were planned to be rescued. ~>

    October 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm |
  47. Riley

    I hope they all get back together with their families and get back on track with thier lives, I also hope the rest of them get out safely.

    It is amazing how ,by encouragment and support, things can get done. This is an incredible story on how amazing we can be if we (as humans) put our minds to it. Bless the miners and their families.

  55. lexi

    God was definately down there with them, and i'm sure many many people were and still are praying for those chilean miners and their families:)

    October 13, 2010 at 3:27 pm |
  57. Sara

    I think it is amazing that they suvived down there in the cold for two months without friends and family,and I'm happy they will finally be out to see them!

  58. Alzayzay

    I'm so excited that the minors are finally getting put of the mine. They have endured so much and for so long. I'm sure they will be overjoyed to be able to see their families again... and daylight!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:29 pm |
  59. Hayden

    I am very glad that they are coming out safe and sound. I hope they are all healthy and feeling good. Hopefully, this wont happen again!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:39 pm |
  60. AJ

    I think that everyone in their families would be so happy. But won't the miners be blinded when they get out?

    October 13, 2010 at 3:48 pm |
  61. Michael

    Finally , they actually been resueced it been like forever since they been able to see the light. I wonder how many days they been underground.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:48 pm |
  62. Nate

    This would be a great movie! I just know it

    October 13, 2010 at 3:56 pm |
  63. Caitlin

    Im glad that they were rescued!!! It feels like it's been forever that they have been underground and i bet their family is overjoyed to see them again in the daylight!!

    October 13, 2010 at 3:56 pm |
  64. Alec

    If I were one of those miners coming out, i would overwhelmed with joy that i would i get to see my family. But I would feel like a mole coming into the light from underground.

    October 13, 2010 at 3:59 pm |
  65. Abbigail

    I think that it is awesome that they can finally get the miners out. It's been so long, I know that them and their families must be so excited and happy to get to see each other again!!

    October 13, 2010 at 4:01 pm |
  66. Gabe

    I dont know how they do it they are able to live down in a cave for 69 days and yet they are still alive!

    October 13, 2010 at 4:05 pm |
  67. Alec

    If I were one of those miners coming out, i would be overwhelmed with joy that i would i get to see my family. But I would feel like a mole coming into the light from underground.

    It is a relief that they are finally coming out.Two months and they are almost out.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:09 pm |
  69. chip

    im happy for them but i cant believe how bad they might feel. I mean seriously they haven't seen light they need to get back into shape the couldn't feel very good not doing anything but eat and stay still half the time if it was me i think i would feel terrible afterwards

    October 13, 2010 at 4:13 pm |
  70. Tyler

    I'm just thinking I know it's going to work. It was built by us and most of the tactics we use in rescuse work.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:23 pm |
  71. Adam

    I am so glad the miners are being rescued! I've been watching the news about it all day.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:24 pm |
  72. Adam

    I've got the answer to your question Michael, they've been down there for 69 days.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:27 pm |
  73. Eric

    I think that it is a wonderful thing for the miners to be getting out. It has been a long time since they've seen the sunshine, and it might take them a while for them to adjust back to it. It's great that the rescue has gone so well so far, and we'll keep hoping that it stays that way.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:36 pm |
  74. david

    it is wonderful that a lot of the miners got out I an hoping all of them will be out soon and the miners must be rejoicing and be very emotional :~)

    October 13, 2010 at 4:37 pm |
  75. Kiersten

    When I was whaching the minner rescue i was thinking is GREAT that all 33 minners are ging to be safe,see thier loved ones and not have to stay down in that mine and worry if they are going to live or not.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:38 pm |
  76. Ben

    It was a good thing they shared the food, otherwise it would have out as a different story. Also I think it was very cool to hear that most of the miners had offered to go last, especially in a life or death situation!

    October 13, 2010 at 4:42 pm |
  77. zach

    God bless all the minners and there families that must of been hard for them and the families

    October 13, 2010 at 4:43 pm |
  78. Elizzabeth

    i feel it is very emotional because they can finally meet up with their families and see something other than the inside of a mine. but it must also be very hard for them to leave the other men they have become so close too over the past two months.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:44 pm |
  79. Andy

    I think its amazing. We should be happy that we have the technology that we do. I hope that when they all get to the surface they are all o.k. and i hope that a tragedy like this will never happen again to these men again.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:48 pm |
  80. Justin

    Its great that there out. I thank God that the ones that came out were OK and nothing was wrong with them. I believe that all the mothers, fathers, relatives, etc, are all glad to see them come out safely.

    October 13, 2010 at 4:51 pm |
  81. Alexa

    I am so glad that they are starting to pull people up!=) It sounds sooooo scary on how they are all stuck down there=( From what i heard from some of my teachers at school, they were not gonna bring them up atleast till christmas!!!! i am so thankful that they get to come up and eat as much as they want. i was watching the news and i heard that they only got like a certain amount of water each day. yikes!

    October 13, 2010 at 4:52 pm |
  82. Erica

    I feel very happy that all of the miners are still alive and rescued!! They will still have to go to the hosptal for 48 hours to get there eye vision used to the sun light. Then after they can go back to there normal lives ABOVE GROUND!!

    October 13, 2010 at 4:53 pm |
  83. Percy

    I hope they get get out because they have been there for 70 days. I think there families have alot of hope.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:01 pm |
  84. Ethan

    I watched live on the CNN website, miners 17 & 19 come up. It is tragic. It is also a big story. Almost as big as the Gulf spill. The miners were trapped for 69 days. Sadly, some miners may be down there for 70 days.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:02 pm |
  85. Ellie

    Why risk injuries when you already know what the outcome of the football game will be? Sure, they probably hurt the other team's feelings. But at least no physical injuries took place.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:06 pm |
  86. Sarah

    I'm really happy for the miners' families! I'm just worried that those goggles you talked about won't work and damage their eyes! At least they'll be free:)

    October 13, 2010 at 5:06 pm |
  87. Nathaniel

    It is amazing that those men had beat the record that is 65 days more that the old record, lets just hope that they arent mentally ill i know i would be mentally ill that would drive me crazy beeing stuck under ground

    October 13, 2010 at 5:07 pm |
  88. Camryn

    I think the rescue is going to go well. Right now, the only thing they have to worry about is if the miners can withstand the small space and making sure their hole doesn't collapse. (Unlikely) We should be so grateful that there are people who really are commited to helping these people. It's a miracle they're all still alive. 🙂

    October 13, 2010 at 5:09 pm |
  89. tseten

    i think that it is a happy moment but remember there is still more to go.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:10 pm |
  90. gina

    I think it was really sad that the chilean miners got stuck underground but I also think it was good for them because they could get closer and closer to each other every moment they were trapped.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:11 pm |
  91. Bryce

    They shouldn't have backed down it's teaching to be scared when something or someone is bigger back down,and just suck it up and play.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:11 pm |
  92. Aaron

    I think that rescuing the miners is a wonderful thing. I know that the miners are very glad to be back to Earth... as well as there family members; i know their glad to see the miners, considering how long they've been underground!

    October 13, 2010 at 5:13 pm |
  93. Leni

    WOW!!! Stuck in a dark, eerie, crammed space for so long?!?! I don't know if I would have survived that like they did!!! =)

    October 13, 2010 at 5:13 pm |
  94. Eric

    They should have played any way despite injury

    October 13, 2010 at 5:14 pm |
  95. Bryce

    I'm so happy for the miners it so happy to know that their getting out i'm glad for eveyone who is coming out 🙂 😀

  96. Zachariah

    I believe that God was with them and they are very lucky that there has been no complications. I do believe there was a 34th the Holy Spirit.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:14 pm |
  97. Hannah

    I've been watching CNN every day and I'm glad that the 33 miners are finally being rescued from that dark underground mine. This should not have happened to a couple of nice Chilean miners. I wouldn't have wished this on my worst enemy. Nor anyone on the face of planet Earth. I hope every thing goes as planed and this will be over soon. Let's pray to God that every thing will go well and end well with all 33 miners safe, sound, and healthy. 70 days without my family, I would be crying till I was saved if I was one of the miners.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:14 pm |
  98. GJ

    Finally, the miners are getting rescued my school and I have been praying and waiting and hoping it's finally happening!!

    October 13, 2010 at 5:14 pm |
  99. Hunter

    To the miners, it would be like heaven; literatly! They're eyes will be so accoustomed to the dark, everything will seem 10 times brighter than it really is. Let's hope all of them are safe after this

    October 13, 2010 at 5:15 pm |
  100. caleb

    i think that they should had two different drills at the same time. It takes the same amount of time and it is faster

    October 13, 2010 at 5:15 pm |
  101. Mahkia

    What an amazing story! I am so thankful that the miners are being rescued and reunited with their families. Kudos to all who made this achievement possible.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:15 pm |
  102. Jennifer

    I hope that the miners are okay and they haven't gone insane because of the fact that they've been in an enlosed area for 2 months

    October 13, 2010 at 5:16 pm |
  103. Gabby

    Its a big world out there and some of my friends did not even no about the Chilean miners and i cant belive that the miners final get to see there famlies its really really amoshenal.I really felt bad for the miners when they got trapped.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:18 pm |
  104. Rosalie

    I think it is great that the Chilean miners have finally been rescued. Now they can go back to their families and continue living their lives.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:18 pm |
  105. samantha

    I am so glad that the miners got out! I am sure they were so excited to see their families. They were probably even happy to see a hospital.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:20 pm |
  106. Gabriella

    I really feel bad for the miners because they have been trapped in a mine for 69 days and as soon as they come out they have to go right to the hospatil and they only get to see there famlies for like two seconds.But they still are comming out of the mine and every one in the WORLD!!!!!!!!!! is really really thrilled that they are comming out .

    I think all the miners are so happy to come out to see their families. They were probably really scared that they would never see their family and friends again. I am happy they are all safe.

    ya it was so cool siten in science and watching on the smart board live footage of 2 miners come to the surface and we were only 2 hours behind them

    October 13, 2010 at 5:27 pm |
  109. Lily

    My class was keeping up with the miners! It was emotional watching the miners come up and hug their crying families! Their families must have been VERY anxious for their dad and/or husband to get out of that cage! The minors must've been scared being in a cage as wide as them prying through rock! It was a VERY dangerous rescue!:(

    I'm very glad that most have been rescued and the makers of the Phoenix have done a very good job by making some thing to get them out quickly.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:31 pm |
  113. Stephanie

    I am so proud that they are getting the miners out.I am also proud that they are going to see their family again.God bless all of them.They have showend that anything is possible where ever you are.

  114. Haley

    It is so great to see al of these miners emerge from this hole that they have been in for so long. I am just glad that they can see their familes again and I know that there are so many people waiting to see their loved ones. I'm just glad their out! 🙂

    I think the coolest time is when they meet their family. I cant imagine what it would feel like to see light after 70 days.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:36 pm |
  118. Kylia

    I'm so happy for the families of the Chilean Miners. Because, they get to see they're relative member after 69 days. I think they're should be stronger job-sites for these people to work on and feel safe with a Non- Dangerous job-site(; Thankss, Kyliaaa

    THATS SUCH GOOD NEWS(:
    i can't believe it took them so long though. i'm praying that all the other miners get out safe.

    Of course I'm happy and cover up your eyes!

    October 13, 2010 at 5:40 pm |
  121. Miley

    I'm so happy that (almost all of the minors) are rescued. It would be horrible to know that for 69 days, you might never get out. But they accomplished it!

    October 13, 2010 at 5:43 pm |
  122. Liz

    I'm happy but I think it's about time they come out aand move on.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:45 pm |
  123. Christine

    I think that the miners will be relived that they are finally out of the mine, they get to see their family, get to see sunlight and finally get some fresh air.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  124. Angela

    I belive that it's a great thing that the Chila's minners are saved! They get to go back to the familes and see friends. They get to have more food and water after getting barly anything. I'm relived they are free and I'm sure everyone dose too.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:54 pm |
  125. Ali

    I think it's great that they are being rescued! If I put myself in their shoes, I would be driven crazy! I'm sure they worried, but they were tough.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:56 pm |
  126. Corbett

    I'm can't even believe this. I'm sure the miners are thrilled just to be getting out of the mine, but also to see their friends and family. It's amazing to see what can happen when a team of determined people put their heads together to figure out a solution. This is one of the many examples of that. Also, I'm sure the ride up from the mine will be a very emotional 20 minutes for each and everyone of them in light of what has happened here. God bless the miners and their families.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:56 pm |
  127. celestina

    i think that it is hard for the miner'sbeacause they have not seen sunlight for longtime and thier family can't wait to see them.

    October 13, 2010 at 5:58 pm |
  128. Max

    I am very glad, as are many people in the world, that these people have finally been rescued. I couldn't stand being unger ground for two months, I'm very claustrophobic. I feel so happy that the miners are finally being rescued!

    October 13, 2010 at 5:59 pm |
  129. kennetha

    I am so happy that the miners are being rescued as I am writing this, their families must be excited to see them since they were trapped for 70 days. I am glad that some and some will soon be reunited with their loved ones.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:00 pm |
  130. Katy

    I am very happy for all those families that have been waiting for their loved ones for 2 months. When i look at the families i realize that i am a very lucky girl and that I have a great family and that i have a lot. Hopefully the miners will all come out safely and that their families will be alright. Good luck to all those who have or will participate.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:00 pm |
  131. Kelsey

    I think its about time those miners come to the surface and return to their families.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:06 pm |
  132. Drew

    I feel very happy for them! 2 months underground not seeing their families would be like tourture for some of us!

    October 13, 2010 at 6:07 pm |

    I am so happy for all of the families that will get to see their loved ones again after two months.Seeing what they have gone through i have realized that i am lucky to have a family. good luck to all those involved in this expeirience

    October 13, 2010 at 6:08 pm |
  134. Kelsey

    I couldn't go that long down there without my family. I sure do appreciate the fact that they can see the surface again.

    i am happy that the miners are finally getting rescued and get to see threir families again

    October 13, 2010 at 6:08 pm |
  136. Carter

    I am happy for the miners and their families, but what about the last one of the workers sent underground to help the miners? The last one up of those five is going to have a tough time locking and preparing the capsule for his own trip.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:10 pm |
  137. Smantha

    I am so happy that they are finally coming out it seems like years to them but I but they are glad to be coming out.

    Finnaly some good news.There are so lucky they got saved or even discovered most people would have been missing for a long period of time until there body's are found died. They everybody who help them get out this alive.

    I'm so greatful that the miners will get to come out and see their family again. I hope this will never happen again

    October 13, 2010 at 6:23 pm |
  141. Alex

    I am so glad that they finally are coming out. If they, the miners and the rescuers, had not been patient, most of the miners would not have survived.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:26 pm |

    This disaster is almost over! It will be great for the miners and ther families' to finally be reunited again.

    I think it great that the 33 miner are up from the under the groud an they get to see their faimly again.

    I feel good for the miners because some already came out. I would wonder what well happen to there eyes.

    Thank goodness they got out! All of their families are to happy for words.

    October 13, 2010 at 6:53 pm |

    They must be so happy to be safe after being trapped for over two months. I just hope they didn't leave anything down there!

    October 13, 2010 at 6:55 pm |
  150. Chris

    I really think someone was watching those miners through this horrific incident. For 70 days, they were stuck down there with no TV, no phone to call for help, and no computer. At least they're all alive and none of them of killed.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:01 pm |
  151. brett

    i think that the miners will be thankful for the rescue efforts and will be glad to once see there families again.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:02 pm |
  152. amber

    I'm just curious to see their health status.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:02 pm |
  153. Daniel

    Even though I'm not related to anyone being rescued I think it's amazing how fast the team took to get as many miners as they did. 28 of 33; and to think where and what they were doing. If I was stuck in half-a-mile of rock; I'd probably not be here right now; I wouldn't last.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:11 pm |
  154. Matt

    I wonder the miners will all do first?

    It's sad to think that with all the technology we have, miners still get trapped underground, but at least we could get them out. I hope in the future we can develop safer ways to mine, or not have to mine at all.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:24 pm |
  157. steven

    I would feel happy for the miners who are out but I really feel sad for the miners who are still in. I would not want to be the last one out. I would want to feel how it feels to go up in the phoenix how would you feel?

    October 13, 2010 at 7:24 pm |
  158. sam

    That little shaft has to be very scary but they are all happy to be up on the surface again.

    The minors have to be in such relief!!! If i was a family member when I found out they were trapped I would think that meant i would see them again!!!! I am in relief now to know that they are out!!!!

    October 13, 2010 at 7:29 pm |
  161. Misty

    That is so great. those miners have been traped under ground for 70 days. FINALLY they are back home. Let's celebrate!!!!

    If the team felt that they needed to forfite for safty reasons then i think they made a good choice. We dont need to risk somone just to play a game. There are many other football teams out there so play them.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:32 pm |
  164. Nicholle

    I think it is a miracle that the miners got out. I am hopeful that the rest will get out as well. It might be just the miracle we need in these tough economic times.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:36 pm |

    I think those miners are overjoyed! I think that they should celebrate life!

    i think that it is great that the miners are finlly being rescued and i feel happy for the miners because they have been throgh alot these past months and they really could not even see there familys

  168. christopher

    If I was one of the miners I and found out I was going to be rescued from being traped I would be full of happiness because I would be able to see my family.I think they are amazing beacause they've been trapped for more than TWO MONTHS!!!!!!!The miners have to wear sungglasses so they're eyes won't sting until they get used to the light and a special clothing so the sun won't hurt teir skin.And they have to be in the HOSPITAL FOR 48 HOURS!!!!!!!!If I was trapped I would be SCARED.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:44 pm |
  169. Rachel

    I'm thrilled to see the miners come to the surface. Since the first day I prayed they would come out safely. I think that they can be an inspiration to people to never give up hope and to be optimistic even in the worst cases.

    I think its amazing for miners to come together and realize that there is hope. They survived about 70 days. That is amazing! Way to go miners.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:48 pm |
  173. Annie Lou

    I was so happy that the miners got out, after more than 90 days of being underground, they can finally see natural light again. They are also joyfully reunited with their families. I cannot imagine what it would feel like to be stuck half a mile under the surface in a area that is about half the size of an average classroom. I'm so happy they are out!

    October 13, 2010 at 7:49 pm |
  174. Kira

    They are lucky to get out! But, sadly, that's just one of the horrible things that are happening around the world.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:54 pm |
  175. Ethan

    I think this shows a great example about how our world has come together for this amazing event. Every time another miner comes up it gives you goosebumps. I thought I was going to get bored of watching this event. I didn't. It was a very moving story for me.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:55 pm |
  176. HannahKate

    This is amazing how these people stayed with each other this long.
    If I was under ground that long with my friend we would have killed each other by the time we got out.

    October 13, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  177. Ryan

    I think that the chilean miners are very brave and also think that their families have been very patient. Finally, I think that it was very noble for all of them to volunteer to be the last one to go to the surface

    October 13, 2010 at 7:58 pm |
  178. Tommi

    It is great and I hope that the rest will get out safely. I wish them the best.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:00 pm |
  179. Maksim

    I think its wonderful that they finaly reached the surface. It was very heroic of them and they deserve a award. There relatives must be vey happy to see them.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:05 pm |
  180. Jordan

    I think that its awsome that the miners got to the surface. The president of Chile sould give them some kind of award for being underground for 2 months and staying positive no matter what.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:09 pm |
  181. Grace

    It seems like the whole world has come together to support the Chilean Miners! I think that is great and I hope all the miners are healthy and reunited with their whole family soon!

    October 13, 2010 at 8:10 pm |
  182. Chris

    I think that the Chilean miner rescue is going really well. It really seems like it's going as planned, and even better. I think that the sooner we rescue the miners, the bettter.If they weren't where they were in an emergency food spot, they would have all died. I'm glad that even though it's been about 60 days or so, it's good that Chile finally rescued them.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:11 pm |
  183. Alexa

    I wonder how well they could see without the special glasses. If I were one of the trapped miners, I would be very excited to be out from under 2000 feet of rock and able to be with my family. I would be very glad to see the sky and nature instead of only rock and dirt.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:12 pm |
  184. Anabelle

    I think all of the 33 miner's parents,children and wives\husbands must be estatic to see them! Did you know that when they pulled the miners up,they must pull them up (in the capsule) veeeery slooowly so that they dont have face extreme air pressure and also did you know that some people had to build a walk-in hospital so all the miners could get Physicals right as soon as they get out the capsule?

    October 13, 2010 at 8:13 pm |
  185. Syeda

    Its americle that the miners came out safely and alive I am surprised!

  187. Jenna

    I am very thankful that we have people like that to risk their lifes. I pray that they are all ok. That teachs you to be thankfull for the people that are all around you. Also it teaches you to think about others and not just yourself. I hope those miners are all ok.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:18 pm |

    I think that the chilean miners and their families are being very patient withthe rescue efforts. I think that this event should be remembered forever as one of the most amazing rescues of all time. Also, I like how all the chilean miners volunteered to go last.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:38 pm |
  196. Ari

    .....As my mom always sees "when you put your mind to it and your friends and family are there to support you, you are sure to get the job done." We all are very thankful that the miners were rescued . I really do think god was watching over them down there.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:38 pm |

    At least they are safe.

    finally.they have got out of the mine.when i watch the miners get out,it was so cool.now everybody can enjoy being with there family members again.wonder if the miners were afraid while they were going through the pipe thinging that are bring up the miners?

    October 13, 2010 at 8:44 pm |

    its amazing.there familys are happy and so am i. i felt bad when they got stuck in the mine. i was gloomy for the 2 whole months. now i am as happy as a europen who finds a ship load of gold or as my friends say what ever tickles your peach.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:47 pm |
  202. Chloe

    It is great that the miners are out. Even better they got out almost a month earlier. I am doin a project on Chile and i'm going to include the good news. Unfortunely, the people will have damage both physically and mentally. Why did this happen in the first place we should be more cautious, because the next group might not be as lucky.

    October 13, 2010 at 8:48 pm |
  203. Simms

    I think it is amazing that they even found the miners. it is just incredible that they would even rescue one of them, never the less rescue all 33.

    I am very happy that the Chilean miners are finally coming out. I would never be able to with stand that many days underground.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:08 pm |
  214. Miranda

    They deserve a party and a pat on the back for their high spirits. I think thats what helped them survive.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:08 pm |
  215. Zulu

    Finnally while i was watching the show i was wondering why it took so long to get them out, im really happy for them, reunited and it feels good right? i know i wouldnt be able to do what they did, i liked the comment one of the women made that there "was one extra person it was the lord."

    October 13, 2010 at 9:09 pm |
  216. Edwin

    I really think its very good because they got to save a 33 man in 1 or 2 days i think. So i hope all of them are in good shape and heath. And thank god they are all with there family

  217. Jackie

    I think that the look on the family's face would be unforgettable and the feeling they felt at the moment there family member ran to greet them.

  218. Isaac

    I think this is great that the miners will be rescued and finally get to see their families again

  221. Reese

    This is an icredible story. I am so happy that all the miners are out. It has been two months and I was preety sure that they would be sick of each other by now but no, they still love each other. For the famillies that had a love one in the mind I am so happy that everyone is ok. Certainly, god was with them the whole time. To the miners in Chile felicidades!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:18 pm |
  222. Leni

    I think the miners deserve some sort of reward, some sort of trophy or medal because they were willing to go underground, and help dig for the country and didn't complain like a lot of people would have if they were stuck underground!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:21 pm |
  223. Maria

    The miners deserved it all. Like they said God was always there giving them a helping hand.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:25 pm |
  224. Thomas

    I think that its grate the miners are finally coming out and how healthy ther all are. I hope that by the end of the day all 33 miners make it out unharmed

    October 13, 2010 at 9:25 pm |
  225. Janelle

    The rescue is something that we will not forget, and thankyou for all the people who helped get these men out!

    i`m so happy that the 33 miner`s are out and only a few to go but i also am glad there healtht and there familes ar glad that there out i also hope it does not happen again.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:28 pm |
  227. Ed

    As one of the miners said," There weren't 33 down in the mine there were 34 because GOD was with us the entire time." The only reason they all got out of the mine safely was because of GOD. HE performed a miracle!!!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:29 pm |
  228. Caleb

    After what happened there in Chile, they should have more saftey materials and not go so deep in the mine after what happened here. Hopefully, this taught miners a lesson to be more safe and alert if this happened again.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:31 pm |
  229. Madyson

    I feel happier and happier each time they pull another miner out. I have been very worried that some of these miners wouldn't be alive right now but I am glad that they are so close to the end of the rescue mission.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:31 pm |
  230. Paige

    I am super happy to see htat the Chilean Miners have been rescued. I am especially happy for all the family members who have been there from the start. They are relieved and probably very happy to go home!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:32 pm |
  231. Sitara

    I'm overjoyed!!!! When I first heard about the miners, I was thinking I would lose hope right away if I were in their place. But when I saw the look on the miners face and the joy in their families faces, I realized that they had not lost hope and now, I feel strong.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:32 pm |
  232. Christina

    I think that the miners being rescued is amazing. We always hear about the bombs that go off in Iraq and Afghan,but for once we're hearing about GOOD news. It makes me feel good that the workers were able to work fast and get the miners out safely. It also warms my heart that most of the miners were volunteering to go last. I am happy for the Miners families,I bet that are ecstatic!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:33 pm |

    I think it's great that they got the miners out. But what I'm wondering is how will this effect their life now? Will it effect them emotionally or physically?

    October 13, 2010 at 9:37 pm |
  236. Melissa

    It's such a great feeling to know they are being rescued. Even around the world, everyone is still caring for them as they go through this. It's not just people in Chile, but people all around the world are listening and hoping for the miners rescue. It's an incredible miracly they are making it out. They truly had someone with them, watching over them.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:41 pm |

    i`m so happy that the 33 miners are out and only a few to go but I am also glad there healthy and the family`s are glad that ther out I also hope it does no happen again.

  238. LUCAS

    I am so happy for the families of the miners because now they have their daddy,brother,son or uncles back at home. It would be so hard to be gone that long from family members and to also be underground for 69 days. I am glad they are finally out! Please disregard my previous blog it was for something else about sports.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:49 pm |
  239. Amanda

    I am so happy for all those trapped minersand wish them the best because not that many people can do what they did. The fact that they kept such a high spirt surprises me even more. I know that I could not have done that. I can no even dream about what that would be like.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:49 pm |
  240. Mason

    being stuck underground for 68 days must have been tragic, thankfully all of them are okay and their family gets too see them, the question is, were they getting paid during this two months underground or not?!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:50 pm |
  241. Alexis

    I feel its wonderful for them to be out and getting to see their families again! It makes people relize anything can happen to anyone and these 33 miners have survived a lot, by what they have went threw underground! I bet there happier than ever to see their family and be above ground again!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:53 pm |
  242. MeChelle

    IT IS SO AWESOME THAT THE CHILI MINERS ARE GETTING OUT!!!!!!!!!! I think they they are really brave to make a living in two months in the dark with no light, and very little food. RIGHT ON!!!!!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:56 pm |
  243. Hunter

    I am very happy the miners are out and well, if I were down there I would've freaked out really bad! My experience with that is that I would never not want them to get out of the ground. Well if anyone should have been crying it should've been the miner's families. What I'm wondering is how that those glasses they had protected their eyes from being in the dark since early August.? Well, I'm really just happy they got out and that those kind of things to anyone else.

    October 13, 2010 at 9:57 pm |
  244. dominic

    I was told it was going to take longer to get them out, but i guess it went faster then anyone imagined, besides the minors in the confined area were well taken care of during that time. we should not only thank the workers who saved them, we should thank the citizens of Chile for all the support they brought the the site..

    October 13, 2010 at 9:57 pm |

    A true miracle...this really is a moment of worldwide humanity. Viva Chile!

  246. Eric

    While it is a complete tragedy that the poor miners got trapped in the first place, it is great that many people out in our big world are hoping for the best of these guys, they were really strong for enduring this tradgedy, and doing so with a smile!

    October 13, 2010 at 9:57 pm |
  247. McKenzie

    i heard that they have atleast 9 people up on the surface is this true?

    October 13, 2010 at 10:00 pm |
  248. Mackenzie

    The rescue is a miracle. Everyone worked hard, and got the job done. The miners are safe now with there families. The whole world came together to solve a problem. This is a great story that we can carry with us for years.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:02 pm |

    I think this was a tragic accident but all the people who helped save the miners shall be blessed by god.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:03 pm |

    well at least there getting rescued now after 2 months

    October 13, 2010 at 10:10 pm |
  251. Julie

    I was so excited to see the miners come free!! I got to see one of the miners come out live as it happened, and it lifted my spirits for the rest of the day!! God Bless the miners and their families.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  252. Cody

    it is great news. i bet that the miners never thought they would be important as they are now but this prooves that people should never give up when life seems faint and dark.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:18 pm |
  253. Hannah

    My dad and I have been whatching CNN cover the story for the past 24 hours. I think it is so happy that all the miners heve no serious Injuries, and they all made it out alive. I can't imagine being trapped underground for 69 days. I am also watching CNN as I type, and there are still only 3 rescuers underground. It seems like chile is very happy!

    October 13, 2010 at 10:19 pm |

    im glad that the miners are sfae and sound and that they're happy to be back aboe ground

    October 13, 2010 at 10:27 pm |
  255. Billy

    I feel really happy for the miners and their family because after 2 months of not seeing your family you kind of miss them.Plus you're stuck in the ground for 2 months too so that can't be comfortable

    October 13, 2010 at 10:28 pm |
  256. Jack

    Trapped in a mine for two months having to wear those glasses for maybe 2 weeks. How whould u feel if you were trapped in a mine for 2 months. They were pretty excided when they came up it's like a whole nother land on the moon.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:33 pm |

    i think its great that the miners got out safe i hope it never happens agian

  258. Kylie

    All I can think of when I watch the men being rescued is that they are so lucky to be alive! When you hear of mines collapsing it's usually followed by a death count.. I bet all of them realize this too and are very grateful. I am happy to see them being safely rescued from their long wait underground.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  259. Robin

    I am so relieved to see these miners come up to the surface and for them to see their families again. I know the families are overcome with joy.

  260. Meilani

    I'm glad that the 33 miners have finally been rescued. It's really nice to hear they're safe after 2 and a half months trapped underground.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  261. Taylor

    I know the past few months have been hard for the Miners and their families. But I'm pleased to know that all have remained strong and have helped eachother through this. The fact that almost all the men had offered to go last in the rescue process, made me realize that most of the miners would rather get out last, then not get out at all.

    October 13, 2010 at 10:40 pm |
  262. Tia

    Im glad they got out, besides if I was in there i would so be able to fit through that tube

    October 13, 2010 at 10:42 pm |
  263. Ethan

    The rescue team did an amazing job getting the miners out! i'm happy to see all of them get greeted by thier loved ones. Our thoughts and Prayers have been answered. Did you see the part about the one miner with the mistress though? I think that is a crazy way for the wife to find out she was cheated on, anyways hats off to the drillers!

    October 13, 2010 at 10:54 pm |
  264. Harry

    Though in the far away China, we are still concerning about the 33 Chilean Miners Rescue. That show the world is tied together no matter what have happen.

    October 13, 2010 at 11:03 pm |
  265. Angie

    I just can't stop smiling. These miners are incredible. Their faith, and hope is something I look up to. Seeing these miners finally reunite with their families is an amazing thing to see, all that hugging and laughing, and chanting. At first, when I heard of this incident, I thought this plan was going to fail. Now I stand corrected, and I am glad that I am. God bless all those Miners in Chile, and all those workers who made the rescue possible. 🙂

    October 13, 2010 at 11:04 pm |
  266. Donya

    They must be so happy that they finnaly get to come out. I bet it will be weird seeing the light. I wonder if they will have to wear goggles.

    October 13, 2010 at 11:05 pm |
  267. Lindsey

    I can only imagine what their friends and family thought when their loved ones were rescued. It is great that they finally get to see the light of day again, but after those agonizing days that they were trapped... will they REALLY be able to adjust?

    October 13, 2010 at 11:07 pm |

    Now the miners could be home with their families, who have also suffered some type of emotional pain.

    THAT was the most amazing thing I ever saw in my life, people not losing hope and coming out 10 times better than people dreamed of Thank you to all who work and supported those who got the Chile men out of that mine.

    You know it's Marvelous affair when two presidents of two disputing countries(Bolivia and Chile) stand
    side by side, putting away their differences, for the lives of the miners.

    While watching the Miners being rescued really says alot of the Human Race where we all come together to help one another

    I am so glad that all the miners are safe and out alive. God was with them all the way .That is a sighn of releif .The familys of the miners are really happy that this tragedy is down and over with.

    I was glad the fact that they rescued the miners. I was also glad because the miners were so positive, even when they were trapped in the mine. They deserve to be free.

    What I think they should not have used a tube the should have used a diffrent way to get them up

    I am so glad all of the miners came up safe and sound. It was such a relief to see the miners coming back up above ground back their familys.

    This is wonderful. I think that this news has brought the world together trying to rescue the miners, and luckily we succeeded.

    They are so lucky! I am really happy to see them rescued... They showed us that there will be luck if we hold hope tight.

  290. santo

    When I watch or hear about the miners being rescued, I feel reassured that not everything in this world is going downhill. Its not just disaster, bad economy, and war, there are lots of good things too. When I see the miners reaching safety, it makes me think of how strong and patient the miners were. As I'm writing this, all the miners are safe on the surface. It's just nice to know that some things do turn out right. For every amount of bad things that happen, there needs to be a good story to balance it out. Like the rescue on the Hudson last year, the miners are this year's miracle story.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:32 am |
  291. donald

    it's hard for anybody to understand what was going through their minds as they got lifted from the ground. But it was really nice watching the miners being able to see their family and loved ones after 2 months of not being able to see them.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:35 am |
  292. Kit

    It's a really good thing that they are getting these people out of that hole and back to the surface where their family and friends have been waitting to see them and see them safe again. I personally think that they took WAY too long to do it, my cousin is only a few years old and she considered digging a hole the first day they announced that they were trapped. It's good they are healthy and safe, but they took too long to do so. They could have been saved with drilling a hole in a few days if not a day, throw a climbing rope and harnes down and pulling them up maybe more then one at a time.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:36 am |
  293. Yasu

    This is great news, and I was waiting for this moment since I heard that they were trapped. But, the truth is, something like this shouldn't have happened at all. I hope the mining industry will be more careful of accidents like this in the future.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:38 am |
  294. Ilira

    Wow, it's so amazing on how strong those miners must have been. Hopefully none are injured or blinded!

    October 14, 2010 at 8:39 am |
  295. donald

    nobody will be able to understand what was going through their minds as they were slowly raised from the ground being able to see their friends and family after 2months. It was really nice being able to watch the miners come out being soooo high strong and happy. when most people would be scared and really sick

    October 14, 2010 at 8:42 am |
  296. Nick

    I cant start to imagine how hard it was to stay down ther for 69 days of pain and suffering. That just seems terrible, no who sould suffer that.

    ...I'm so glad that my students were able to see the generosity, courage, and faith demonstrated by the Chilean people and others around the world. It was an inspiration to us all. Thanks so much for providing this resource for classrooms across the world.

    When i heard about that last miner had made it out it was very inspirational because they were under there for two months. I might have went crazy if I was under there that long.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:05 am |
  301. Katie

    this is a delightful, and wonderful moment for everyone. i loved the happy ear-to-ear smile they had when they jumped out of that small capsel. whenever my friend and i knew about the one who had gotten proposed to under ground, we smiled and cheered long "aaawww!"

    October 14, 2010 at 9:05 am |
  302. Kiersten

    I envy the brotherhood of that the miners have develeped over the past two monthes. Many books will be writen and read all over the world. Even with that no one will ever understand the things they've been through.

    My class has been watching CNN Student News every day so we have seen about allthe footage about the Chilean miners an What they have been through. It was very inspiring to see the miners rescued. The only thing you could wish for, is thatit never happened.

  306. Sara

    I was so touched when I heard that the Chilean miners were rescued. Everyone was so happy! I hope that something like that never happens again. Many people I know cryed at the sight of those Chilean miners hugging thier family and friends. No didn't get a hug. I'm so glad those miners are out of that big black hole!

    October 14, 2010 at 9:06 am |
  307. Meredith

    When I saw the miners being lifted out of the mine I was so glad. It's so wonderful that all thirty-three miners survived and got out safely, so they could see their familys for the first time in three months.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:07 am |
  308. Eddie

    I think that it is very important to have almost all of the chilean miners safe and rescued. So let's hope that all of the mineres are safe and healthy. I'm very glad that they can see light.

    It is such an inspirational thing watching people ALL over helping these miners get back to their family and friends safely. I was so happy when the miners came to the surface... it felt like a miracle.

    Im thinking as i watch what if someone dosent come up safely? What if most of them die a couple of days later? i hope that these miners will return to their happy families safely and live their normal lives before the accident.

    When the miners got out one by one my heart slowly feeled with joy. God was with them all the time. I'm happy for all the miners, and I was really glad for the miner who got proposed to(it was so romantic; everyone in the class went awww). God thank you very much.

    I know that the miners have come up safely. But I am so worried about them. I was so glad to see the miners and their family reunite. I am sure that they were glad to. I hope they will be alright from how long they were underground. If I were them I would not be able to take it. But I guess they are tough and I am not.

    I am so happy about the miners getting out. They have very strong faith. I have to admit if I was down there, I would have gave up hope. God has been watching over miners.

I'm very excited along with the other millions of people and wish i was an eye-witness. this is an amazing mark in history that I'm glad to share with others. Of course this may not be the most import I'm glad that we youngsters are able to be informed in this up-to-date info. thanks Carl your the best.

    This is the greatest and fantastic moment in history today. We all should be concerned about these miners in Chile because they were trapped for two months underground. I believe that we should honor this moment today in history. Now is the time to stand up for this moment in history today and express our concerns for these miners today.

    After hearing about the trapped miners in Chile being finally rescued I was very happy and relived. It made me have hope for the cooperation of nations with fixing other future disasters. I also feel that it acts as a reminder that not every story ends in tragedy.

    these miners have been down there for 69 days so why are people crowding around them when they should be able to see the earth for the first time in a long time instead of more people.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:47 am |
  337. Josh

    Its pretty cool they survived for at least 70 days plus I like the miner Super Mario I watched the last of the miners get out it was just amazing/awesome!

    seeing people get help or rescued is so cool to me .i think that the 33 miners was lucky to live and to have people to love thim

  339. Brennan

    I think the miners' families are the ones in the hurt. It's great that they finally get to see them. When the other nations were cheering and crying about each miner coming out, I thought again that we still all are humans with some love in us.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  340. Alie

    I think the miners rescue is amazing! Everytime a miner came up i was relieved for them. I thought about their families and their friends everytime they came up. It was absolutly amazing what they went through. I am so happy the one man was able to see his baby being born and the other was proposed to. I thought it was great that they thought of the idea to make day and night and have different people who had jobs down their. I think they had a very good way to keep their sanitly. This whole expeirience is a miracle and gave faith to the whole world.

    The rescue has been a long an strenuous task, the men and women that have helped rescue these brave men never gave up never stopped praying and gave into the elements of the harsh environment.

    God Bless

    I am so glad that most of the miners are safe and with their families. Hopfully the others make it out safely. I'm surprised that none of then wanted to go first.

    I think its really interesting, but it makes me wonder a little bit, why couldnt they have tried this a little sooner. I'm just glad that all of the families are reunited.

    I think that it is just magical that all 33 miners are still alive. All the people who helped and prayed for the miners helped in all the best ways possable. I also prayed for the miners when I got up and went to sleep. It's true magic!

    I felt a mix of emotion from joy to sadness. Joy for the miners and there families reuniting. But sadness for the families having to wait that long to see there husbands or boyfriends or children. God Bless them All.

    I think that it is wonderful that the miners are now out of the mine. I can't image being trapped underground for that long. Sometimes I think we take for granite what we have. I'm glad that I could be a part of watching as the brave miners came to the surface.

    i know that many people will just be saying: "oh they were so lucky!" or "oh how amazing the people that brought them out!" And they are right, the people that brought them out of the mine are amazing. but it wasn't them that made the miners safe. it wasn't really them who brought the miners out of the mine perfectly healthy. it was the One and Only God that did. God was up in heaven but there with them and here with us. i am just so amazed what God can do for them and what he did for them and also what he did for us. I mean if you go and ask your parents if they would send you to die for someone you don't know. they would probably say that they would never do that. and i am betting that you wouldn't be willing like Jesus Christ was. I am so glad that God brought those miners to safety, and i am glad He brought me to safety.

    I am so happy that all the minners got out alright.I would be so happy if I were one of the minners stuck down there.I was so happy when the 33rd minner got out.

    This is a miracle. I saw the 9,11,13,20,and 33 miners. When they came up i was so happy. I started crying when the 33 miner came up. I know I am not family but thank you to the helpers who got them up. This inspired me.
    I think I might have another favcorite number.

    I was so happy that all of them got rescued and that pretty much everybody was helping and cherring when they were getting out of the mine. I kept on thinking "What would I have done if I was a miner and I was being rescued by the phinoex.:)

    I am very happy that the miners have been resued but I feel that it shouldn't have taken so long for them to BE resued. They did not need so much technology just a hole and a lift everything doesn't have to be so advanced. I am surprised they did not go blind when they saw the slightest bit of light. It is amazing the amount of driving force some people have to live. I am happy for them and their families and that they were able to let people know that they were down there

    I watched the 33 minor come up. It was amazing. It is so cool how that one little capsule can do all that. I felt really bad for the people that were in the mine and for there families. I am suprised that none of the minors went crazy.

    i was amazed when the last miner was about to get out of the mine,their family were probably really amazed because they havent seen them in like 2 and a half months,'chi chi chi le le le los mineros de chile'!

    I think that the news is always so depressing. But todays news was so uplifting and happy. August 5th when they we trapped in the mine was tragic, but now they are finally out after 2 months and i am excited for them!

    October 14, 2010 at 11:45 am |
  396. Jackson

    That is really good that they all got out. It made me imajine what it would be like if I were one of the 33 miners. That chant at the begining really showed how happy they are, good for them.

    I am so happy to now know for sure that all of the 33 miners are now rescued and not just rescued but completly healthy! I can't imagine how overjoyed the miners and the family members are feeling right now! I am also happy to know that it wasn't just chileans working together to get them out but also, people around the world too!

    I think that this is a very exciting event for the miners , their families and other people around the wourld.It is good to know that everything that happens now of days is not always about violence or tragic events.Most of all, i am happy that they rescued all the 33 miners and all of them came out alive ,plus all of them had no medical problems so far.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:46 am |
  399. Antonio

    I think thats it great that the minners are out and healthy.But i fell bad for the minner that had a wife and a girlfriend that the wife found out that he had a girlfriend asside what a thingh to find out when you got out.

    I think all countries should be proud of Chile, the miners and the rescuers. The faith this miners have is admirable. I'm really glad the miners are all fine and it would be awesome if all the miners wrote a book together about this incredible story.

  402. Chelsea

    As i watching the minors get rescued I was imagining how all of the families and friends and how others felt about the rescue. From August 5th to this very day ( October 14th ) they have been trapped and now rescued. The thing that I could not belive was how long they have been trapped underground and they all still survived, They also had to wear special glasses just because they havent seen sunlight in so long im surprised they all survived.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:47 am |

    God is very powerful. He is always with us. He would rather watch us die peacefully than die in vain. It wasn't time for the miners to go. If it wasn't for god and those good souls who wanted to save the miners they might still be down there. God bless those good souls. I love a happy ending to a news story.

    It's miracle how these brave miners got out , all 33 of them healthy . These 33 brave men have been so positive , and I feel soo happy for their family , imagine how they must've felt when they heard the news . They've inspired me so much && it's amazing how they got out one by one .

    FINALLY THE MINERS ARE OUT! imagine how it must have felt for the friends and family of the miners to see them for the first time in 2 and a half months it doesn't matter now all that matters is that the minners are out.

    I belive that today's news was so relieving.After so many depressing stories there is finally a happy and exciting story.When i heard about the news i felt so upset because if that was my family trapped down there i would cry.I am sp happy now that their saved.

    I think the the miners escaping was a blessing not only for Chile but for the entire world. It was a burst of happyness,excitment, and relife when the first miner escaped, just like when a baby is born.

    i am glad they are all safe and made it out alive. i wish their families the best. i would have panicked if i was trapped underground for two months. i would have a new outlook on life and appreciate it more. They are very brave men to stick together and make it through.

    I'm really happy that they've all been rescued and came up healthy. It's been over two months since they've been trapped down there away from their families. It was such a relief to see them come up.

    It's really nice to see the enthusiasm and nationalism coming from these miners. It's amazing to see the faith these miners not only have in their religious beliefs, but in their country to rescue them.

    I'm glad that this tragety is over because now the miners can now reunite with their friends and familes. This is something that we will be remembering over the years in the future.

    I was Very excited when i heard they were going to be getting all of the miners out soon. I had been watching every chance i got to see if everybody was still doing okay. I am very happy to hear everybody is out and is okay.

    i think that we as the world have come together to help. and i think that will help the miners get over what they experienced and i think that it is great that they finally got out of there.

    Finally, its about time they resuced them it seems like its been forever. Also, I think that this helped the world unit as one for a while. It is amazing how they all got out safe and saw their families again.

    Its pretty definate that the miners are real studs for surviving that. They deserve to get paid big bucks for this.

    It was VERY exciting to be able to watch the miners come up and be able to see what the mine was like down there. I am happy that all 33 miners came up safe and are with the family and friends now. I was glad that they had the support of family up at the top when they came up and got to see them...

  426. Jade

    all i'm thinking is wow they are all finaly out of the dark "jail" if i was stuck in a dark place for as long as they did me and probly most people would go a bit crazy. so i'm happy for the miners to be free and be with family and friends again.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:58 am |
  427. Jordan

    I think that its great that 33 people managed to get along for two months in that mine. We could all learn a thing or two from this.

  428. Lexi

    It's a good thing that the miners are finally rescued, and that they can see their family agian. It's amazing how fast they actually got them out, compared to the date they set to have them out by.

    I am very excited to see all the miners have been rescued. It has been a long time since the miners have seen their families and friends. Thank you to all the brave men who helped the miners come back to life.

  436. kyle

    pizza is the most important thing the miners should have to eat because they are probably hungry

    October 14, 2010 at 12:38 pm |
  437. kyle

  440. Chelby

    I think this is amazing, that it wasn't god, it was them. These people should be very very proud of them selfs.

  441. Sonia

    That was amazing that they servied that long with out anyone knowing they were alive and then even longer after they were found. It made me vary happy to see that all of them made it out

    October 14, 2010 at 1:01 pm |
  442. Ben

    I was thinking about how hard the people must have worked to get them out this quickly. They must have worked all day and night to get them out months ahead of schedule.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:01 pm |
  443. Even

    Its great that all the miners got out safely and I wish there family's the best of luck to the future.

  444. Misty

    I thought that it was pretty amazing that all the miners got out alive. I have heard many news stories were some people have died and others have lived, but I've never heard that all the people that were in this predicament that went wrong, that all of them survived.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm |
  445. Ryan

    thats awesome! what a wonderful thing. If I where to go mining, I am confident that I wont be trapped there.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm |
  446. Amethyst

    I think together the victory of the people to save the miners is amazing and that we should be so happy with our lives because we never know what we have til it is gone.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm |
  447. Sarah

    This rescue is really inspiring, when most things in the news have been bad, it's nice to see something good. It's really nice seeing people from around the world caring about these miners even if they don't know them and all watching it happen live and reacting the way they are.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:03 pm |
  448. brendon

    I think that this is great that they got these miners out. If that had been me I would of gone crazy. For them to be under ground for 2 weeks that is just crazy. I think that the rescuers did a good job at saving these people in the amount of time they did.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:03 pm |
  449. Christina

    I feel some kind of relief not that they are out. I feel that we can breathe now, cause you got that feeling that your breath has been taken now that they are in danger. Now that they are out it's like you can breathe again.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:05 pm |
  450. Paige

    This is very exciting news. The whole world is very excited. The fact that these people made it safely from being in the crown for that long. The people who made it so the miners could come out are some amazing people.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:05 pm |
  451. Sean

    its good that everyone over the world have the same feelings, and the world can be thankful for the savior of the miners

    October 14, 2010 at 1:05 pm |
  452. Jake

    I think it's amazing that no one died. It's so great that all 33 miners got out safely. This definitely does show that mining is a dangerous job.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:06 pm |
  453. Ben

    When I watch the rescue I think of the will power that humans have to survive. To be stuck in a cave with 32 other miners in cramped spaces and to not know weather you are ever going to see you family and friends let alone that world that you know and love that is a half a mile above you. When I see the rescue cell going up through the hole I can't imagine having to wait till you get to the top. It must be nerve racking. All I can say is these miners are very, very brave.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:07 pm |
  454. Wyatt

    It is very inspirational to see the miners rescued after so long I cant imagine staying underground for so long without going crazy.

  456. Cassie

    I am hoping that they will get out soon. They have been under there for about 70 days, and they are finally coming out! Their famuilies will be so excited and grateful that they are finally reunited with their family and loved ones. There are also celabrations all over the world for the rescue. With the miners out, some say they are " reborn ". And I think so too. the miners rescue has been a major achievment.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:20 pm |
  457. Ryan

    The rescue was a success and it was a great thing. It was great when all the miners got out.

    October 14, 2010 at 1:21 pm |
  458. Brenda

    I really wanted to cry but i have to be strong just like the miners were down there in the mine... they gave an example that you have to be strong and stick together.Hope they are all ok.I wish them good luck with all my heart.

    Im really excited that the chilean miners got out alive. My dad and grandmother have been watching the news everyday since this inccident happened and have been waiting and waiting and now after 70 days trapped underground they finally got out and the best part is that none of them are injured, sick, or dead all tghem them are alive, feelinn good, and are happier than ever

    October 14, 2010 at 1:22 pm |
  461. Tahiry

    I think it was wonderful when the first miner came out it was just a relief to see that all of this was going to work. when the last miner came out it was so exciting to know that all of the hard work at the end was worth it because everyone made it safely to ground. the miners were so brave and patient for all of it , and their families must be very thankful that everything went good and everyone is safe.

  464. lissette

    I'm so happy that the minors finally got out.It was also a big coinsidance that they got out 10-13-10 and if you add 10,13,10 equals 33 and there were 33 minors i guess it was just what god intended

    October 14, 2010 at 1:23 pm |

    I was so happy and excited when I saw the miners coming out of there and I thought it was a miracle.I also felt happy for the families of the miners because they hadn't seen them in so long and I think it was great they all survived because it could of turned out bad.

  466. Teysia

    While watching the miners come out I felt really happy that they got to be reunited with their family.Also , I was very glad that they were all healthy. I really wanted to cry because of the sight of them rising to the top safely. I learned that when in doubt stay strong and don't give up something great could be instore.

  486. Zach

    I think that was history in the making. Those men were incrediably brave, and the people saving them are our leaders. I watched it happen and it was awesome. Mining is dangerous, but those men showed us they didn't care.

    I think its great that the miners got out safely but what suprised me was that they got out a month before they thought they would

    October 14, 2010 at 3:26 pm |
  539. Alex

    I find it amazing that those miners were able to basically live underground for 69 days and had the good spirit to keep going and not lose any hope at all. It mus thave taken an immense amount of strength to get through the ordeal for both the miners and the miner's family and friends. Im glad that everyone is OK in the end; the news needs more hopeful stories like this.

    I have been watching CNN Student News since school started,and I've been following these miners since I heard about them on CNN Student News.I am so glad to hear they are out,and I bet they are to.There was so many things going through my head when I heard about this.Like are they going to be ok ,or when will they get out. It is finally over.

    October 14, 2010 at 3:34 pm |
  541. Ulanie

    I am so happy that they are rescued because now they can see their family again and don't have to worry about thinking if they are ever going to get saved or not.

  543. Haruka

    Oh thank goodness! I was so shocked when I first heard that they were trapped down there .It must be so uncomfortable to sit in the dark and not be able to see where you are or even try to get out. I'm gladthat they are getting out.

    October 14, 2010 at 3:41 pm |

    After being trapped for so long I am so glad most of the miners have been rescued. I do wonder though, how they'll go back to living their normal lives. They'd probably be really sensitive to the sun and the fresh air...wind especially. But none the less, good luck to them. I know I couldn't have survived that.

    October 14, 2010 at 3:51 pm |

    My darling teacher, Mrs. Freeman, updates my class with the Chilean miners trapped underground quiet frequently. I am glad they are reunited with their family and friends. The fascinating part is they set a world record for the most time spent in a mine!!! 69 days to be exact!

    I believe that it is a miracle that the miners have finally been rescued. Their families must be so happy! It is really moving to see how each and every one of the miners lived and kept their spirits high the whole time! Everyone should take into consideration the things these men have been through, and realize that life is a precious thing!

    I think that with all that is going in the world today. This is absolutely great to lift the world up. Not just for the Chileans and their families but for the entire world. I think that God was truly the 34th person down in that mine. If God hadn't been with them, some of them would have been severly harmed if not dead. I would like to thank my wonderful teacher Ms. Freeman. She has been great to me this whole year!

    I am very happy that the miners were taken care of and I am so very happy that we were able to save them. Also, my increible teacher, Ms. Freeman, was very nice to keep us up to date with the miners. I think that we were lucky that the miners did not have to stay in the mines any longer than they did. God was the 34th person, guiding them to safety.

    I belive this is one of the most amazing heartwarming stories i have ever heard. knowing that they were trapped down in the mine god must have been smilling down on those miners, he was with them every step of the way.

  565. Kenzie Jo

    well I am so happy that they got out... 🙂 I guess the lord worked with us all in this long 2 months..... I no that they are all so happy to bean joined with their families once again...... :-))

    October 14, 2010 at 4:17 pm |
  566. Hannah

    I am glad that the minners are out but I think that people should see this as a warning and not mine anymore. All it does is hurt the enviroment. What happens when we mine for oil? Boom!! Oil spill!! Minning is just not good for the enviroment. Yes, it helps us but not the animals, plants, water and our earth that is dyeing out.

    October 14, 2010 at 4:28 pm |
  567. brennen

    I think that it is cool That they got them out of the mine. I bet all of there familys are happy that they are out and can see them after 63 day. I think that they are going to make them take a sower.

    October 14, 2010 at 4:38 pm |
  568. Chase

    Wow...A modern day miracle...Imagine the feeling of those miners as they see daylight, feel a nice cool breeze, and see their families for the first time in months......Happy to see it....

    It is so amazing to see the miners out of the mine. When I heard that one of the miner's girlfriends sent a note that said, Will you marry me?, I thought that he must be so excited to see her.

    October 14, 2010 at 4:46 pm |
  572. J

    When i saw the video I thought that it was very inspiring when each of the miners came out of the mine alive all 33 of them

    I'm so glad that they are finaly free, my mom started crying out of hapiness after they were all free. It's also amazing how much energy the second one had.+ nice glasses;)

  576. Christine

    You know, I watched that with my family, and it was so nice to see the men come out after they've been under the ground for over 2 months. I'm glad everyone got out safe.

  577. jack

    sometimes people think that saving someones life can be impossible, but what these people did just proves that nothing is imposible if you put your mind to it.I think that they are lucky that they were rescued.HORRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    October 14, 2010 at 4:56 pm |
  578. Kaylen

    It's great that the miners have finally gotten out of that mine. Being stuck anywhere is a hardship, but it's even worse with limited contact with the outside world, and in the same enviroment for a couple months straight.

    October 14, 2010 at 4:58 pm |

    its good to know that theyre safe and sound.We will all remember this day throughout history. So reliefed when i saw them all with their families.Some pretty crazy stuff happened that day! :]

    October 14, 2010 at 5:02 pm |
  581. Zoe

    I think that the miners made history today and watching them arrive to the surface in the Phoenix has been thrilling and emotional. The 33 miners are reunited with their families, safe, and well.

    October 14, 2010 at 5:05 pm |
  582. Amy

    This story was truly amazing!!! I think it's wonderful how the Chilean community got together so quickly and worked so quickly to get them out! I love how one miner said that there was really 34 of them down there because God never left them!! It was truly amazing!!

    October 14, 2010 at 5:05 pm |
  583. Jim

    The miners have kept there pride and hope for their country and to get out of the mine. The surprising thing is that all of them offered to go last
    TOUGH DUDES

    I think all the people who said that their were 34 men down their were right, because are God never leaves us, even in hard times. as me and my friend Arianna watched, we were amazed at their faithfulness.

    Everyday in school we watch cnn student news, and todays was incredible! I am sooo happy for those brave miners that they all safely reached the surface. This was a miracle, God bless everyone involved. Im excited that they are united again with their friends and family. Hopefully another incident similar to this won't happen again! But if it does, I hope everyone worldwide will help out again!! =)

  593. Drew

    I can't believe how faithful they were! It is AWESOMETASTICAL that they are free and able to see those they've been without for so long. The truly phenomenal thing is that we found them and got supplies down to them to keep them alive. It also does strike the world to let them know that miracles do happen – they're just not on the news as much.

    October 14, 2010 at 5:51 pm |

  597. Keaton

    I think it's great that they have been trying to rescue the minors. Im shure their familys are realy are happy to have them back.

    October 14, 2010 at 5:58 pm |
  598. Aaron

    A story like this is just heartwarming. The miners can hopefully have a wonderful time with families and friends. The workers who helped them out should be praised too.

  599. Lucille

    This is so awesome, and I'm really happy that they're all eventually going to make out.
    And I was really surprised when the minors took turns on riding "Pheonix", all of them trying to go last, and I was a bit ashamed of myself for being so self-conscious everytime.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:07 pm |

    October 14, 2010 at 6:21 pm |
  605. Annie

    It is quite amazing how they built the capsule with all those twists and turns on the way up to the surface. It would be like having a whole class trapped in one, small space. They have taught each other how to be patient and how to cooperate with others.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:22 pm |
  606. Aria

    I am seeing this story alot on different news channels and the firs time i saw this i cried. I was so happy for those people and their families. If I was a miner and that happened to me, I would try to find a safer job.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:23 pm |
  607. Elizabeth

    I think that God is watcing over all of us. Nomadder what race, size, or shape. And as many of the miners could probrably tell you, this instance just proves it.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:25 pm |
  608. Ashley

    I was excited to see the miners being lifted to safety to reunite with their families. It warmed my heart to see how many people were praying for them and waiting for their rescue. It was good to see the smiles on the faces of everyone, even the miners who had been trapped for months underground.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:26 pm |

    All of those men should feel blessed . . . I feel blessed even though I'm not one of them. It just really shows that help is on the way. For our country and for our world.

    I think this is great news to hear from. At least hey had contact with the world above, though if I were one of the miners trapped underground, I'd be worried, and bored to death.

  620. Kathryn

    I just knew that all the Chilean miners could be rescued. When I found out they could do it, I thanked technology, the miner's supporting the others while they were trapped down there, and the world. I just knew from the start that they could do it.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:49 pm |
  621. Cindy

    It's an awesome thing that they're free. I mean imagine being trapped in a collasped mine for over 2 months, with no food for the first few weeks, everyone thinking that they were dead. It's amazing how they were able to survive. They must be very proud and elated.

    October 14, 2010 at 6:50 pm |

    i am so happy that all of them have came up safe!! And i love how all of them look nice when they came up! i how they make a movie about this ...this would be a movie i would want to see. =D

  624. Jarrod

    It is very touching to see the miners come up. It is also bitter sweet. It's sweet that they came up ok but bitter because we never unite as a country like Chile did. Saying so I'm Calling out to The U.S. Government, to STOP all of the ridiculious arguements and unite like Chile. We are The UNITED States of America, not The ARGUING States of America

  626. Katia

    I'm so glad that the Chilean miners made it out safely. When my mom told me that the rescue had begun and they had already gotten several miners out, I was SOOOOO relieved. I mean, if I were trapped in a mine, I'd go completely BONKERS. Those miners were really brave.

    October 14, 2010 at 7:20 pm |
  627. Zimmy

    We watch cnn student news everyday in school, and lately I've been really attentive in seeing the rescue of the miners. I think that being able to come together worldwide inorder to help a nation out is phyneominial. This was clearly shown through the rescue of those miners. I am sooo happy that they all reached the surface safely and that they will be united with their families finally again. This was simply a miracle, may God bless everyone involved. This just shows how truely dangerous this job can be.

    October 14, 2010 at 7:21 pm |
  628. Lauren

    It takes a certain type of person to have the resilience to stay in that mine, trapped half of a mile below ground, with limited food supplies, and no natural light. They have survived a nightmare and they are worthy of the stardom that they have been launched into due to their heroic tale. If Hollywood decides to make their remarkable story into a feature film, then it is because these brave men deserve to have this event cataloged in a way so that no one can ever forget what they have accomplished here... and this accident will, like the oil spill in the Gulf, help raise safety standards in mines across the world so that a horrific event like this one will never happen again.

    October 14, 2010 at 7:22 pm |

    Those miners were down there for nearly 70 days, 33 men in one room managing to stay alive. There families must be so proud of them and thankful to have them home. This Thanksgiving they sure do have something to be thankful for!

  636. Ryan

    Its good to know in a world of people in such a devastated economy, there are still people out there willing to give time to help those who need it. Most people are too ignorant to care.

    October 14, 2010 at 7:42 pm |
  637. brett

    its good that they all made it out safe and sound and that they can be with there families again. and start what they left of with

    October 14, 2010 at 7:43 pm |
  638. Aidan

    I would have been happy if i was rescued from the mine
    It would have been a tragedy to be there 2,300 ft under ground for 70 days and then come to see my family again

    October 14, 2010 at 7:43 pm |
  639. Sal

    I think that was a very comforting thing to say when the miner said "there was really 34 of us because God was with us also."

    October 14, 2010 at 7:46 pm |
  640. Paloma

    Those miners definately had to be paitient, faithfull, and brave. I am glad that they are out of the mine and are safe and back with family. No one will ever forget this day.

    October 14, 2010 at 7:47 pm |

  644. Cassidy

    It is amazing how 33 people can live in a mine for more than 2 months. Also how they did'nt get sick of each other! I could'nt do that for sure. This is definetly going down in history!

    October 14, 2010 at 8:03 pm |
  645. Elizabeth

    For all those miners to make it out, alive, is a mericale. It is good that they could go back to see their families after 69 days. It's good to see, in the world we now live in, that everyone could set aside their differences and work together to save the 33 stuck miners.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:03 pm |
  646. Casey

    Happy the minners got out safe and sound 2 month must be very long time to be under ground! Happy that the minner are safe!

    October 14, 2010 at 8:05 pm |
  647. Jenna

    I am so happy that the miners are out of the mine! I can't even imagine how hard it must be to be away from your family and be half a mile underground at the same time. These Miners were really brave to be able to handle being trapped so far underground.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:07 pm |
  648. jacob

    I think it would be scarey to go in a small capsell from deep in the ground to the top and here people screm with exsitment and friting but exsitting t see your husbin or feenosay or so on.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:08 pm |

  651. Xenia

    I'm sooo happy that the Chilean mimers have come out from underground since they have been i there for two monthes. As being a mexican it was the most grateful thing in the world. The family of the Chilean miners were right god never let them alone. He was with them before it happened so why would he leave them when it already happened. My family and friends were so grateful about all of them being out.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:13 pm |
  652. Tamara

    I think it's amazing how the chilean miners survived through being underground for so long. God bless them.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:14 pm |

    I feel very relieved that the miners are safe and reunited with their families.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:14 pm |

    I'm happy for the miners and i really look up to them for being so brave.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:16 pm |
  655. Tim

    I think it is very relieving for the miners and their families to see each other after such a long time of worry and doubt. Watching them being pulled out was touching and relieving.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:17 pm |
  656. heather

    i think its cool that they got rescued and that they are reunited with there familys and dearly beloveds

    October 14, 2010 at 8:26 pm |
  657. Anna

    I am so glad that all of the miners ended up being rescued. It brings me great happiness that we have people out there willing to follow through with their plans and not give up when things get tough. I hope that in future situations like this, we can work just as cooperatively to save endangered lives.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:28 pm |
  658. Brody

    I'm so glad all of the 33 miners are out and with their families again. I can't believe that they were down there with no light, some food and water, and God.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:35 pm |
  659. Suezanne

    I was so, so happy when I watched the news and saw that most of the miners had been saved! I would have volunteered to go first to go up first to see if it worked. I hope that all the miners will get up safely!

    October 14, 2010 at 8:37 pm |

    I think that it is great to see countries working together helping each other out.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:41 pm |
  661. Ted, Kate, Joe, Sean, Emma

    We are thrilled the miners are out safe. I thought that it would be much worse, they should be glad they are very lucky.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:46 pm |

    When the miners were rescued I let out a sigh of relief, I was affraid of a tragic end.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:50 pm |

    The miner's kept God's faith and survived. They are lucky.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:50 pm |

    I think that this is a lesson to all of us. We sould be more careful with everything we do.

    It's great that the miners have been rescued, that really has been a great acheivement for Chile. People everywhere are extremely happy.

  669. tyler

    I am really glad when the minners came up... Because there was many loved ones down there that could of been hurt or worse died.As each one was pulled up i bursted into applause and screamed as loud as i could.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:57 pm |
  670. Amanda

    I stayed up all night glued to the news. It's awesome that all the miners were brought up safely and in high spirits.

    October 14, 2010 at 8:57 pm |

    thats awesome how all of the miners got out safely.

    It's great that they got the miners out i would'nt be able to do it!

    October 14, 2010 at 9:02 pm |
  673. Alexa

    It's good to hear they're ok, but i don't really think it's the minors that are inspiring, it's not like they had a choice but to be down there anyway...

    October 14, 2010 at 9:02 pm |
  674. Kayellynn

    The entire Senior class and I have been watching this event for a while and when I saw how relieved the miners families looked I could not help but feel a ton of relief myself. This experience really shows how people can put aside their differences and join together in a time of trouble. I hope most of us have learned from this amazing rescue.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:02 pm |
  675. Ashley

    I think that this rescue shows that through all of the difficult times in the war involving violence and the economy issues, this gives us hope that all nations can work together to create a solution.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:04 pm |
  676. Madison

    Its a beautiful thing when so many people from around the world come together to help people in need or in trouble.......everyone worked really hard for this rescue and it payed off! When the first man came up, I almost cried when I saw his son's face. Imagine being away from a close family member for almost two months! Families have finally been reunited and I am overjoyed that everyone is safe!

    October 14, 2010 at 9:08 pm |
  677. Amanda

    I would not be able to do that I would be way to scared and if I spend fifteen minutes in that tit of a space for fifteen minutes I would hurl allover the place.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:18 pm |
  678. Hannah

    I so glad that the miners are finally safe. Someday this will end up in a history book. I also heard that one of the miners was a diabetic. I can't believe he survived, as a diabetic as myself. I wonder if he got supplies from the helpers that gave them food. Did he every need more food, or water?

    i really hope every and one of the miners are so happy to see thier families again after 2 whole months!

    October 14, 2010 at 9:25 pm |
  680. Andre

    I think it is amazing, they can now see their families and the people waitting on them. They can now live a normal life and chose if they still want to mine. They can now spend time with their families that they did not get when they were trapped in the mine. With the money they are going to get to be in movies, books, and newspapers they might not want to mine ever again.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:27 pm |
  681. Megan

    They should really create a movie about this. These 33 miners' story has captured the heart of the world and it would probably make a lot of money. I know that I would want to see it. I thought it was really nice that so many countries gave Chile so much support.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:28 pm |
  682. Candice

    I think it's awesome that they got out, and they finally get to be with their families and friends.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:31 pm |
  683. Lauren

    I think that it is great that they are out of the mine. I would definitely not been able to survive and I still can't believe they lasted over 2 months! It was such an incredible thing and I wanted to say thanks to them for being so brave 🙂

    October 14, 2010 at 9:33 pm |
  684. Miracle

    I think it is miraculous that they got all thirty three miners out safely with out any glitches!

    October 14, 2010 at 9:42 pm |
  685. Lupita

    I am so glad to hear that the miners are safe and sound. It makes it even more special to know that all the families got to see the loved ones out safe and sound. When i saw the first miner come out of the ground i felt so happy and that was just me but to know what the famils are feeling must be relieved and excited to see their loved ones once agian. I am so happy 🙂

    October 14, 2010 at 9:47 pm |
  686. Joshua

    70 days!!!! Ican tell you now I wouldn't survive that long underground
    I probally would of died. I'm glad they got out to see thier familys
    again plus it was just a miracle to see the miners.
    It was cool to see the miners to get out of ground.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:51 pm |
  687. Carson

    It's amazing how the miners survived, went through the capsule, and was able to save food that lasted 2 days, for 14 days.

    October 14, 2010 at 9:58 pm |
  688. Daniel

    CHI CHI CHI!!!! LE LE LE!!!! LOS MINEROS DE CHILE!!!! What a way to motivate the miners! Besides the fact, I am immensely happy to know that the miners are out of the cave-in. After so many weeks of praying and keeping hope that they are going to get out, they are finally rescued. May all the miners spread their experiences to the people around the world.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:06 pm |
  689. Jesse

    I think it's great that the miners are free. They can reunite with their children and wives and just be happy.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  690. Dylan

    It's amazing how the miners could survive all that time down in that mine. After most of my friends saying they weren't going to get out, I always believed that they would. It's really nice to hear that all of them were ok. Way to go miners! Hope some of you that are injured get better soon and are able to take off those sunglasses (even though they look cool)!

    October 14, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  691. Jesse

    I think it's great that the miners are rescued now. Now, they can reunite with their childen and wives and reurn to their normal lives.

    man did those construction workers work fast but i'm happy they got out

  693. Jordan

    There have been many events in the world that have made history and are remembered by all, but they are mostly about wars, attacks, and other tragedies. This one miracle has the potential to remind the world we all share the same earth and are all people.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:27 pm |
  694. Hannah

    I am just so happy that the miners got out safe,and get to see their family & friends again! I hope they have happy lives!

  695. arantza

    I think this was a great way to join all the countries and support our Chilean neighbors;Notwithstanding, this is going as a historical day where we rescued live instead of death miners. I am glad they are free and full with spirit.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:30 pm |
  696. Ryan

    Having the miners out of the mine is a relief everyone was scared that something tragic would happen

    October 14, 2010 at 10:32 pm |
  697. Stephen

    being trapped in underground for months can be depressing but on the bright side you get free meals, a vacation from working, and free fitness plans to get in shape.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:32 pm |
  698. Shalanda

    Those miners have the hearts of true hero's. I find it truly inspiring that they had enough faith to get them to live weeks half a mile down in the earth and trust that they would be carried to safety.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:34 pm |
  699. Seth

    I am extremely glad that all of the miners are out and ok. they deserve to be healthy after all of the postive attitudes they had.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:38 pm |
  700. Brandon

    I'm glad they have been rescued and that their are people willing to work day in and say out to rescue hard workers that are in trouble.I beleive that it was a miracle and a feat that they have all been rescued safely and reunited with their friends and families.

    October 14, 2010 at 10:40 pm |
  701. Annika

    I thought it was an amazing moment when the miners came out. It was probaly the happiest moment of the miner's and the miner's and the miner's familie's life

    October 14, 2010 at 10:57 pm |
  702. Ammar

    I think that it's very nice to see the world come together to watch and cheer as the miners are rescued, especially with all the depressing news about the economy and people losing their jobs.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:14 pm |
  703. Sara

    I think that what those people were saying about having a 34 th god there was wrong. They had 35 people. There were 33 miners,1 spirit, and the entire world watching,and looking over them. It reached out to my grandmother in England, Me in America, And my Aunt in Japan.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:26 pm |
  704. Claudia

    it must be a happy feeling to be able to see your family and friends and its almost been 2 and a half months there just really lucky and brave

    October 14, 2010 at 11:34 pm |
  705. LeMaster

    when i heard that the chilean miners were trapped underground i prayed everyday that they would all make it out safe.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:36 pm |
  706. diedre

    my geography teacher said that it was the most amazing thing see has seen in he whole entire life! living in a room smaller than ours for 2 months with every one from my class would say it was hard

    October 14, 2010 at 11:40 pm |
  707. Sabrina

    I am very glad that everyone is safe and sound either at the hospital or with there family! They must have been really nervouse coming up just seeing peer dark. I bet they were happy to get out of the under ground and just be free and have the oppertunity to see there family!

    October 14, 2010 at 11:50 pm |
  708. Victoria

    Thank. The lord that all the miners are out. I guess the Lord really is their when you need him.

    October 14, 2010 at 11:54 pm |
  709. Konrad

    I stayed until 4am watching the news and I was amazed how long it took them to rescue the miners from the ground.I was also amazed how many channels were playing the live footage.

    October 15, 2010 at 12:19 am |
  710. tabitha

    i'm happy that they and their families don't have to concerned or worried anymore.this rescue put alot of stress of people.

    i hope they help them we should all pray for them.

    I'm glad the miners are safe. After 69 days underground, they finally see the light again.It's just another miracle done by god in the year of 2010.

    October 15, 2010 at 12:56 am |
  713. Caroline

    It is wonderful to know that we have such a supporting nation. The miners stayed brave through out the whole process and the rescue workers were amazing. God will certainly make sure they are paid back some day.

    October 15, 2010 at 1:25 am |
  714. Anna

    The Chilean miners have been trapped for many days, i'm very glad they were rescued. I thought they would come out terrified but, no they came out very happy. It's like weights have been lifted of my shoulders.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:27 am |

    i think that it is a miracle that all the miners are alive

    After all that is going on in the world I am surprised that countries can come together to rescue these miners

    October 15, 2010 at 7:15 am |
  719. Jake

    I think its wonderful they they came out safe and to see their families. I was so relieved and I thought the miners were very brave to be down there for about two months. Thank god they are alive.

    October 15, 2010 at 8:30 am |
  720. Samantha

    I think it is a great thing for the miners. like people say, its always bad things on the news.... its great to hear something good for once!

    October 15, 2010 at 8:30 am |
  721. Paul

    I think its really good that they all got out, i guess i might be nervous going up the mine, cause it could collapse at any second, but its good that they got out.

    October 15, 2010 at 8:31 am |
  722. Trevon

    i think they are happy about seeing family-

    October 15, 2010 at 8:34 am |

    I think that it is great that the miners got out safely. I bet it was exciting to see their families.

    October 15, 2010 at 8:37 am |
  724. Nathan

    I think it's good that they are getting out. They must be happy to be able to see daylight and to see their families.

    October 15, 2010 at 8:43 am |
  725. Jenna

    I was so afraid for the miners. I thought they all were going to stay down in that mine. If I was in there I would had gone crazy but thankfully they made it out!!! 🙂

    October 15, 2010 at 8:44 am |
  726. Becca

    When I saw the minors come out one by one, it felt like 100 pounds got lifted off of my shoulder.I hope they all recover soon and apprecaite that there are people in the world wanting to save them. HOOOOOORAY!!!!!!

    October 15, 2010 at 8:51 am |
  727. Shawn

    I am very glad that the rescue operation for the trapped miners continues to be a success. It is finally great to have some good news out of that story. At least we can look back and see that the world has done something good for a change!

    October 15, 2010 at 9:08 am |
  728. paul

    I was relieved

    October 15, 2010 at 9:11 am |
  729. Aron

    I definately wouldn't be able to stand being trapped down there for so long. I would have like flipped out!

    October 15, 2010 at 9:21 am |
  730. Shane

    I think it's great that the Chilean Government was so willing to spend millions of dollars to save these miners' lives. I hope they can get back to their normal life and stay in touch with each other.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  731. Melissa

    I think that it is great that the miners were able to come up now. It was a great surprise that the miners were able to come up before they were supposed to. I think that it is amazing that so many people have been in on what has been happening and I think that it is just very kind. I am greatful that the miners are up. The world can now breath a sigh of relief.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  732. Ian

    Its amazing at how much effort and time was put into the rescue and what the result came to be. I think that each cent that was spent was well worth it.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  733. AJ

    WOW! I could have never survived for that long underground. I hope the miners live long and full lives. This will make a great story for their grand-kids.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  734. Bharat

    It's good that these miners were able to get out in the capsule. When things like this happen, people don't always survive. The miners are lucky to be out and we're lucky that they're back pretty safe.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:23 am |
  735. Stuey

    I can't believe that they had to stay in that tiny capule for a half hour. That's amazing. I congraduate the miners for they persaverence and never giving up. I'm also proud of the goverment for spending atleast $40,000,000 on 33 lives.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:23 am |
  736. paul

    I was really happy when the miners were all up

    October 15, 2010 at 9:23 am |
  737. Siobhan

    I think that it is amazing that the miners were supposed to be out by Christmas, but the whole country pulled for them and people worked around the clock to get the out.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:24 am |
  738. Henry

    It sure shows what the human body can endure, but also how important it is to have good health. It shows what not eating and being in the dark for that long. I think this is one of the most inspiring stories of all time, I will remember this for a very long time.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:24 am |
  739. Lincoln

    I Think that it is great for the miners to make it out safely it was a great effort for the people trying to get them out of there. I also respect Mario's comment about how he wanted to go back to his new life and not be a celebrity.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:25 am |
  740. Cole

    I think it's cool that they got out and are okay. =). I probably would have tried to crawl up the tunnel before they sent the capsule down.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:25 am |
  741. Mary

    It's amazing that people all over the world were watching and waiting, hoping for these miners. And now they're out. It's a happy ending if I ever saw one.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:25 am |
  742. Julia

    These miners are truly amazing. I know someone said that they were getting a lot of attention, but they should be. I am very glad that the public was so supportive of the miners. The miners had great people surrounding them as they emerged from the hole, and as they left for the hospital. I am glad that they had a great medical team working on all of them!

    I cant belive that they stayed under there for that long, with no food or water, then when they said that they are getting all of them out it was a happy day for me, know i hope that thier eyes get better so they wont have to wear those sunglass anymore.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:47 am |
  745. Amanda

    I happy that they are all save and sound. I made a power point about the miners. I made a timeline.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:55 am |
  746. Halley

    I think it's really incredible how we actually got them out. And in such a short time. Most people thought itd take forever and thought it wasnt possible! but we did it.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  747. Cassie

    I was so happy and surprised when the miners finally got rescued, back in september, we thought that they were going to be trapped in the mine until Christmas at the least!

    October 15, 2010 at 9:58 am |
  748. Simon

    about 70 days underground that must of seemed like forever.

  749. Katie

    If I was one of the miners, I would have freaked out by the second day, because I don't like small, dark spaces. I feel super bad for the miners, because they could have died in the mine.

  750. Fairview M S Homeroom

    We were upset when we first heard about the miners being trapped and very happy about there rescue, we thoght it was cool the way countries around the world helped get the miners out, and we thought the device that they used to get the miners out was pretty cool.

    October 15, 2010 at 10:14 am |
  751. Morgan

    All that time the miners were in the mine i believed that the they all would be saved and would be able to go back to there homes and share there story's to there family.

    Thank the lord Jesus for saving these miners, I hope that they will accept Christ as their lord and savior! 🙂

    I dont think its really that big of a deal because its the one good thing in the news thats happened in a year and thats the only reason why everyone made it a big deal.

    October 15, 2010 at 10:42 am |
  756. Kyna

    Never give up. Its a story of hope and belife. Maybe there was a 34th miner, others may dispute it. Belife and hope have gone away almost completely at times, This story is a reminder that its still there, that someone is listing whoever your deity might be and that Hope is a powerful thing.
    Best wishes to all

    I think the miners were brave to go down there in the frist place and that the people that help were really supportive.

  761. Kayla

    I think that its a blessing that the miners were rescued.If i could i would have done all i could to help save the miners as well.Put yourself in the miners family shoes, if it was one of your family members trapped in a mine you would want someone to help you and that family member.So thanks to all that put there time in to help the other families and showing respect to the miners.God bless you all ! * Amen.

    It's just amazing.
    And the number of miners, 33 reminds me Jesus who died in his age of 33, and resurrected after death. All of 33 miners as well came back safely from the mine, the underground world like a hell.

    What amazed me is not just safe return (or resurrection) of those 33 miners but also people all over the world have been watching and praying for them beyond nationalities and religions; it is quite unusual and great. In addition, I was so inspired by attitudes of miners trying to let others be saved first, in other words, the spirit of self-sacrifice.

    Now America has been facing a tragic economic crisis; however, I think there is no everlasting night, and morning must come, just as those miners revived like a phenix after about 2 months in dark mine. I hope that American people will be encouraged and inspired by this miraculous news in order to overcome this crisis, and revive as those miners.

    And I also hope that people in the United States learn from those miners' spirits of helping and praying for each other rather than being more selfish in times of trouble. Now is the time our true integrity as human being is tested, I think.

    I think its amazing that they survived for 2 months under ground with out communication for a while. Also i think its amazing for the people to keep trying to ave them for that long!!!!!!!!i just think thats cool!

    October 15, 2010 at 11:41 am |
  764. Owen

    I think it's remarkable that these Chilean miners could survive over two months, about half a mile underneath the Earth. These men were out of communication and had a low supply of food and resources to live, yet they pulled it off.

  770. Taylor

    We really need to stop and think how lucky we are that we live in a society that will do anything to save someone. The rescue mission was said to coast over 20 million dollars! Our prayers were with the miners, and it looks like our prayers were answered! I am so happy that all of the 33 miners are finally free.

    October 15, 2010 at 12:34 pm |
  771. Aaron

    Watching those people get the miners out of the mine makes me want to do something good for the enviroment/community around me. I am very glad that they are out of the mine and all 33 are safe. Thanks be unto God!

    I was so excited once they said the rescue would work! I couldn't believe my ears! I was about to jump out of my seat! I would just like to say I'm so happy for all you miners! Also, I would like to say I was very proud abouit how the world came together and united as one to get all the miners out! CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    October 15, 2010 at 12:57 pm |

    i thin it's great that they're finally free. this situation must make people see and think differently. cause i know now for every bump in the road of life; there's almost always a way out of the problem.

    October 15, 2010 at 1:16 pm |
  775. Monica

    That's great! God Bless. The rest of the world and I are so happy that they survived through that fall, being under there for so long, and coming out... well alive. It was a very historical moment, I'd say. To watch that live feed and just burst into tears of joy! 🙂

    October 15, 2010 at 1:24 pm |
  776. Tasha

    As the miners were being rescued I watched from my 1st hour,2nd hour, and last hour classes.I wasexcited yet scared.Everyone asked me why I was scared and my reply simply was what if the shuttle breaks downwith a miner in it in the middle of the tube going up?

    October 15, 2010 at 1:31 pm |
  777. Tiffany

    i am glad that the miners have been rescued i know that many families feel more complete having there loved ones back with them.

    October 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm |
  778. Violet

    The miners are really lucky that they have survived the cave in. If it were my dad down there i would have taken a shovel and start to dig!

    October 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm |
  779. Noah

    i think that the whole project to the chilean mine rescue was a mirical.
    also it is amazing how the familys of the trapped miners stay right near the mine and live in tents to show that they missed them.

    October 15, 2010 at 1:46 pm |
  780. Isaac

    That is crazy how 33 miners could have live down under ground for about 70 days.I would have totlly lost it.I would have really have lost it being in the phinex for about 15 minutes.

    I think the miners are very blessed and loved by God. Without him thier chances would have been very thin.

    I'm so glad that the miners finally got out of the mine. But I wonder if they are ever going to miss it down there. It's a huge part of their life and they spent a lot of time there. I think a part of me would miss the mine.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:19 pm |
  794. Kirill

    I truly happy for those miners. They have pushed themselves to the brink being underground for so long. If it was me in their situation, I would have died. The miners's relatives are probably very excited and happy to see them again. I also hope that the miners are healthy and doing very well.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:30 pm |
  795. Lucas

    I think these miners who were trapped are the luckiest people to be alive. They are brave, strong leaders. They are so lucky to be alive and not insane.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:33 pm |
  796. Andrew

    Finally the miners are out. I've been praying for these souls to be released from the devil, the darkness and into the light. May the Phoenix take up to the surface (it probably feels like heaven) to light of their family and friends all around them. It almost seems I would rather be them than to have the miners suffer. All 33 of them and the rescue efforts be blessed by the hand and heart of God.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:36 pm |
  797. Alannah

    I am very happy that the miners have a way of being rescued. The miners could have died in the mine very soon.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:38 pm |
  798. Ariel

    Wow! I can't believe it! They were rescued. I'm so happy. I watched it on YNET live and was amazed. The two months of heat and dark. It makes me happy. Thank the Lord we have technology. Also maybe this is a good thing because we can only remember life as little events not big events.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:40 pm |
  799. Arlen

    This was amazing- surviving the heat and darkness for over two months! How these men survived really inspired me and showed me that you can do anything.

    The 33 miners deserve to be free and I am so happy and thankfull for their saftey and well-being. It is just absolutely AMAZING to see the leaders of each country working hard to get those miners out and back to their families. God must have been on their side.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:43 pm |
  801. Amber

    I am overjoyed their families must be super excided to know that there is hope after all no one should have to deal with something like that. Just to see some ones face after a long time of wondering what is going to happen it must feel great.

    October 15, 2010 at 2:44 pm |

    I think its a big relief that they are now free from the underground
    and i think its amazing how they progress and how they used teamwork to do the impossible...
    And they really showed us how to really trust and rely to people around you.....
    and they are the perfect definition for the word survival

    I think it is truely wonderful that they rescued those peoples. I watched some of the rescues and the faces on those families just said it all! They were so happy to see them and it just warmed my heart.

  827. Taylor

    When the miners came out why would the reporters throw a whloe bunch out questions out at them like wanna be in a movie?, can we interview you and put it in a magazine or newspaper or somthing like that i would say LEAVE THEM ALONE! the miners should have some peace with their families and recvoer for being down the the cave for so long...

    October 15, 2010 at 3:14 pm |

    October 15, 2010 at 4:03 pm |
  835. Aphrodite

    I think that it's really great that all of us, even non-chilian in the united states, care about the 33 miners. It really gives me pride to live in a country where even when you aren't one, you support one.

    October 15, 2010 at 4:04 pm |
  836. Izzy

    It is so great that the miners are safe! I had been so worried about them and kept thinking "what if something goes wrong? All of their families are going to be so sad!" I'm so relieved and happy to see them out and safe again!

    October 15, 2010 at 4:08 pm |
  837. Victoria

    I was so scared during their reescue because I was afraid that some how they were going to hit something and the miners would die but when they started pulling them up I could finally breath.

    October 15, 2010 at 4:31 pm |
  838. Livie

    I'm so glad that the miners are out and that everyone's OK I hope the one miner with Punomiea gets better.It's ovious that their friends and family and other miners have helped a lot and it's great that people from everywhere were hoping and praying that they would be safe.

  840. DEVIN

    I THINK THE MINING RESCUE WAS A GOOD THING BECAUSE THE FAMILY'S WILL BE VERY HAPPY AND I THINK ITS A SUCCESS THAT MINERS WERE RESCUDE SO WHEN THEY ALL GET OUT OF THE CAVED IN MINE THEY WILL BE AS HAPPY AS CAN BE FROM GETTING OUT SAFELY AND I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN TO RIDE IN THE CAPSULE

  850. Cara

    I think it's good but I WISH there is a way that this couldn't happen. I t would save alot of time and alot of lives. People should build a emergency shaft of something to transport the miners if it ever happens. But all and all I'm greatful that those people can go home to their families and go on with their lives.

    I cant believe they were rescued from the mine. The comforts of living in the mine were very low. When I saw the miners get rescued, I was pretty happy. It's great to see something good happen on the news after a long time

    I am so happy that they all got out safe.that would suck so bad down in a being traped in a mine for more then a month.I hate going into small spaces it creeps me out. I can't even think of how they must have felt down there hoping someone could help them.Well thank the lord they are safe. God be with them and there familys.AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

    I felt, and I think the entire world felt, and internal sigh of relief that the miners were safe and out of the mine. I honestly had only a sliver of hope that the plan would actually work, it was a miracle that it did and I am grateful for the workers and engineers that put forth great effort to save those miners. It was a wonderful thing to see a potentially tragic story turn to a story of joy and miracle.

    I think that this is a mircale and that we are all glad that they made it out self each and everyone of them!

    The miners were underground for two months with their familys worried and now there out is the most exciting thing for the familys knowing they are finnaly out.I'm glad there out.

    apparently they were happy to get out but. . . .. . . it sure would be scary on the way up!ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE CLAHUSTERPHOBIC LIKE ME!

    I watched the live feed in a coffee shop on my laptop and it was very inspiring. These miners are miracle workers but they shouldn't be public figures, especially since most of them don't want to be.

    October 15, 2010 at 9:09 pm |
  864. Morgan

    I was thrilled that all the counties help and that we got the mines out. I hope all the miners have happy life's and never have to go through that incident again. I wish them well on the road to recovery.

    I think that it is pertty cool that all the miners got out safly without any disasters taking one of the miners up.

    If that butterfly would haven't been down there and they didn't stop to look at it they all would have died and that just would have been a bad thing. But God smilled on them a little and now all they have to do is to get thier eyes better and God will also help them get threw that too.

    i think it is good that there being set free cause it must fell like jail down there cause theres nothing and i couldnt be one of them i am not a pashent person and they would of had to have pashintes to do what they had to do and i would hate to have to wear those sunglasses for a while tell there eyes ajust back to the sun and its raise. :):):):)

    Im so happy that all 33 miners got out saftly, and happy that they were able to survive with stuff sent down a 6 inch tube. But most of all Im so happy and grateful that so many people came to help, save and pray for the miners from so many different countries.

    October 15, 2010 at 11:34 pm |
  874. Erik

    I think that getting the miners out is great, but they still have some recovery because they have been trapped in darkness for a very long time. they are very strong.

    I'm happy that the miners got out safe and sound 🙂

    well i think it was a good thing they got the miners out because to me they are heros and they survived in the ground for 70 days and i know it was boaring down there

    October 16, 2010 at 12:33 am |
  877. Ines

    it was an unbelevible story,one that could and might go down in history with every moment they were down there was another moment of worrie for there familys im just glad that help made it

    I am very glad this tragedy is over and I think it will stay in our heads as a lesson to never give up hope for a very long time. It is nice to see the world working TOGETHER for once and not agianst to help these minners. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I am glad to here that they are safe and agian reunited with thier families.

    When they are down there without food or water until they got some from the surface, I can just imagine how they felt.

    October 16, 2010 at 9:36 am |
  884. Isabella

    I'm really happy that they are all out. Although I don't know the miners, they were still very brave to stay under that long. I don't think I could do that because they have a lot of courage and were confident.

    October 16, 2010 at 9:50 am |

    wow thank god the miners r out of the ground bc if they rnt i would go there n get them outttttttttttttttttttt

  886. BrookLyn

    I think it's great that all of the miners were rescued. I just hope that they can get used to what it's like up here on the surface so that they don't have to wear those goggles any more. I wish them good luck and getting their eyes better.

    October 16, 2010 at 10:19 am |
  887. Riley

    it is so great that Chile used all of that money to help those 33 miners. It just goes to show that everyone's important. And it is also great that they will be making safety changes in the smaller mines, the smaller ones are just as important as the big ones.

    October 16, 2010 at 11:04 am |

    It is sooo awesome that the miners will be able to see there families again I mean if I were to be trapped down there for months I would do anything to see my family again... I am sooooooo HAPPY for the miners and their families:):):)!

    October 16, 2010 at 11:54 am |
  890. Celina

    The miners were probably really frightened while being trapped in a mine for 70 days! I would too if I were them. I am glad that they are safe and sound now with their family and friends. They were probably really excited to finally get out of the mine.

    October 16, 2010 at 12:33 pm |
  891. Kaitie

    This is one of the most fantastic things I ever heard! I am thankful they got out, even though I don't know them.If they didn't it would be tragic. Mining tradigies happen all the time.But not this time.

    I am glad to hear good news for a change. I am tired of all steling, fighting, dieing, and how high the gas prices are. Everyone is probably glad to hear this great news, espiacally the family and friends of the miners.

  901. Breanne

    It's wonderful to hear something good happening around the world for a change! Rarely has the whole world as they are now came together and been so involved in something. Having the world come together and care about people they dont know is not heard of. The miners are in my prayers, and I hope they adjust well to their old lives above the surface.

    October 16, 2010 at 4:45 pm |

    The global effort put into rescuing those miners was amazing! It's nice to know that people care what happens to those miners. Amazing accomplishment.

    I am so glad that this is one of the stories with a happy ending. When I watched some of those miners get rescued I was overwhelmed with joy for each of them and their families. I know the miners are each very grateful for the fantastic efforts that gave them another chance at life and a extremely happy ending to this story.

    October 16, 2010 at 5:06 pm |

    I think it is a miracle that they made it up and only one went to the hospital that is amazing of course not as good as the number zero but it will have to do.

    I think that they need more money and should be treated more then
    other people do.....

    When I heard about the 33 miners getting trapped, I prayed but after praying I still thought they werent coming up. But thanks to the rescuers they were able to see another day of light. Thank You to all the Rescuer!!!!

    I watched part of the time the miners were being rescued and ever time the phoenix would get stuck my mom would freak out!!!!!!! I glad that they are safe I will never ever want to be one of those miners sister, mom, wife, or any family member I would have been crying alot!

    The Chilean Miner story was one of the most inspiring powerful storys. It details on how to stay strong and you can fight againist any odds and win. We wish the miners to have a hopeful, joyful, normal time for the rest of their lives.

    October 16, 2010 at 6:34 pm |
  913. Calvin

    This is great. It truly is a miracle that all the miners are out. It shows what people can do when they work as a team, the thing is (me being a Canadian) I find it awesome that a Canadian company drilled the hole for the miners to get out. Truly was a miracle.

    October 16, 2010 at 6:36 pm |
  914. Annemarie

    When I first heard of the 33 miners beneath the surface of the earth, my heart dropped into my toes. It seemed so unlikely that they were going to get rescued. When many countries teamed together and brought all 33 miners back to the surface of the planet, I was overjoyed. I think it is amazing that so many countries could team up together to help people that they had never met before.

    October 16, 2010 at 6:53 pm |
  915. Claire

    The Chile miner rescue really brought my family together, we all cried in joy that those poor miners were saved from months in pure darkness. I am glad that our nation was so kind as too care so much about Chile that we all waited two months for the victory to subscribe.

    I think it is so great that the miners were all safely rescued. It was becoming so depressing only hearing about tragic or unfortunete events such as the poor economy becoming worse orr the oil spill in the Gulf. It is refreshing to hear about something that can bring joy to the entire world. I am so glad they are O.K and amazed at how brave and stong they have been.

    October 16, 2010 at 9:21 pm |

    I think that all of the 33 Chilean Minors have so much courage and faith. They were very brave to be down there for almost 70 days. I'm so glad that they all had faith in God which helped them through their difficult situation. I just hope they are all healthy and safe!

    It was amazing watching the last guy come out of the mine!! I felt a sort of ....weight leave me.Though it wasn't a good thing and dangerous, it seemed to bring countries together to help. I'm so thankful they were all safely rescued!!!

    October 16, 2010 at 11:44 pm |
  925. Kimberly

    Its great to see all the miners being back with their families. It was a big goal and accomplishment for the workers on the surface to be able to bring them all through the "Phoenix". And the faces of the family members were priceless.

    October 16, 2010 at 11:53 pm |
  926. Matthew

    I think it great how this all worked out and how it didn't end in tragedy. This is indeed a great ending to all this horror.

    October 17, 2010 at 2:34 am |
  927. Noriko

    The news the 33 miners were rescued is great and they are now heroes. But what is important after rescueing is to search out why the incident occured and make it a lesson to prevent incidents. Here in Japan, it is said that we depend on Chilean copper for 40 percent of all in industry. I think we cannot ignorant about the danger in mines.

    October 17, 2010 at 8:06 am |

    I believe that the escape route they made should stay open. For example,it is now a meaning full in peoples lives.

    I'm soo glad that they came out from that mine i can't belive that they were down there over 2 months. if i was down there i would be scared but im glad that no one got hurt. but that little ting that brought up those people was tite in there a 15 minute ride i would be bored but all those people and there famliy wa so happy to see each other again. 😀

    Im so glad that they made it out of that mine i felt sooooooo bad for bad for them and if i was down i would be scared because im scared of the dack. 😀

    I think it is great that the families of these miners get to see them for the first time in a while. This is great news, I hope that all the minors get a full recovery.

    I feel completley touched by this and all i can think of is the familys and how supportive they have been from their loved ones. i can not imagine how much relief i would feel if someone i know was getting rescued right now!

    Sometimes its hard to understand how hard it was what they were going through. They didn't see there family; kids, wives, parents, or siblings for months! They are true heroes.

    October 17, 2010 at 2:52 pm |
  939. Shy

    I think that it is nice to see the miners get resused, and see their love ones that they haven't seen in two months. If I was one of those people I would not have lived under the suface of the earth for two mouths without anyone I know. I aslo could not get into a small space and be very still.

    This story is a wonderful testimony to the strength of the human spirit, of teamwork, and of talented leadership. In addition, it demonstrates how people can ban together in adversity and persist in their goal of solving a seemingly insurmountable problem. Bravo, Chileans and the human race!

    I think its great that there out, but I am wondering if things will feel different to them, more than being back to normal.

    i was so relieved when all the miners were rescued i knew God was with those miners and rescue workers it was just a matter of time.

  947. Kate

    i think it is a miracle to see this happen, they was under there for how long? and here they are being pulled out of the ground. Its amazing.

    October 17, 2010 at 5:11 pm |
  948. Lauren :)

    Well I just say that its a great thing that they got out unharmed. I would be very terrified to go up a 21 inch tube for miles up i would be scared that i would get stuck. They were very brave to go through all of that and to end up ok.

    October 17, 2010 at 5:26 pm |
  949. Blakely

    I think it is just pure amazing to know that the minners got out safely.It could have been way worse ,but to know that thier engeries were not that bad is really great.It makes me believe more now that God does many miricles, expecially after that scene.I wish the best to those miners and pray they are doing well. God bless all 33 miners.

  952. Max

    It must have been really harsh for those thirty-three miners trapped 2300 feet below the ground. It must have been horrible for them to live for more than two months under a dark, hot, and dusty collapsed mine in Chile. They must have been very relieved when they were finally rescued.

    October 17, 2010 at 7:23 pm |
  953. Erin

    When i watched the miners getting rescued i see the excitment in the miners and family eyes even that they were down in the mine for over 2 months they still are couragous men!

    October 17, 2010 at 7:29 pm |
  954. Rina

    I didn't see the great rescue but I heard that the miners had to wear sunglasses since their eyes are not used to light! I am glad they get to see their families and not be stuck undergroud anymore

    October 17, 2010 at 7:29 pm |

    This rescue was an absolute miracle. Everyone watching around the world felt extreme relief once all the miners and rescuers were out safely, and it was amazing that people from all around the world pitched in to help save all these men. This could have been tragedy turned into one of the most inspirational rescues because of people who care.

    I am really glad all the miners got out safely. Thank you to all the rescuers, and if it wasn't for you the miners could still be stuck!!

    I'm glad that they can once again be with their families, and I feel when somthing like this happens it's just the risk that comes with the job!

    I'm sure that their families are very happy that they are back home safe and sound. Hopefully nothing like that will ever happen again.

    It is an amazing story and this was possible because not only Chileans but also the world helped to rescue those miners.
    I`d like to call this "miracle of the world".
    I would like to admire the miners' great spirits.

    god was with those miners and people were praying for them but what made me suprised is their self confidence and their positve attitude which led to a very good result ,i am glad they got out and i hope this problem will never occur again.

    I am very pleased with the people who thought up of the capsule to save the 33 Chilean miners. The whole world has got very excited and roared with glee that the people were rescued but I think we should also thank God too. I am very happy for the workers because they can be free from their sunglasses in the hole.

  968. Nathan

    i think people should be quiet and stop saying "oh yay the miners are up" we all knew they'd escape and guess what they did so zip your lip!!!

    October 18, 2010 at 9:10 am |
  969. Isabel

    I think it's important to remember that they have been stuck underground for more than a month. It's a good thing that finally, in one day in history, that people feel relieve flow through their bodies.

    Away from being sick of tragic news we hear everday, I was so happy for them and as I was watching the last man getting back to the surface, I felt that , finally, there is something good going on in the world.

    I'm glad that the miners got out of their so they can rejoin their loved ones. Can you imagine the happiness they must feel after being away from them for almost 70 days?

    October 18, 2010 at 1:13 pm |
  979. Christian

    i personally hope these people get back to there families in a great healthy shape as when they went in because i mean how could they not be theyre being sent food and clothing through tubes and the only thing that should be the matter with them is that they havent taken any showers!

    The rescuing of the miners has changed everyone especially the chilean people showing that if you just prey and belive anything can happen.

    Its good to see something good happen in a society that is going wrong. When I saw the Chilean Miner Rescue, I thought to myself that miracles still happen in not only America, but the world.

  982. Cheyenne

    I am overwhelmed that the miners are out! I hope they get the treatment they deserve. They show such bravery and courage, they are truly an inspiration to us all. I'll continue to pray for each and every one of them and their families.

    I think its a relief that they survived that dangerous place. I started to cry when I found out. Not so many people survive things like this. God was looking out for them and Im glad.

    The rescue was amazing, and this news was so wonderful to hear in at a time like this when the world is going through troubles. This is like a light shown upon the human race.

    I'm so happy for them! I mean, yes, there has been a lot of sad stories in the news, and it's such a relief to hear such great news. It must have been rough for them being down there. I know it would be for me. Their whole lives had to change. And again I'm so happy for them.

    I think the whole world came together as one to rescue these brave miners. They worked with the system and that got them out for a sucessful mission.

    October 18, 2010 at 4:11 pm |
  997. Nina

    Nobody ever thinks about the little people; the small bunch that bears the brunt of everyone else. The Chilean miners showed how a relatively small group can motivate so many people. After all, first, people expected them to die, not be out until January. And now, because of the hard work of the world, they are safe and out from underground. This is a truly heartwarming story about what we can do when we work together.

    October 18, 2010 at 4:23 pm |
  998. khuey

    its amazing how all these other countrys came together to help the chile miners and their familys.:)

  999. Cydney

    The miners' rescue was truly amazing and emotional. these men have not seen their families in a long time and its a miracle that everyone was able to get out safely. As far as the Chilean Government, they have alot of explaining and the miners deserve to be compensated.

    October 18, 2010 at 4:42 pm |

  1009. Cackie

    I watched as all the miners came out of the mine. It was amazing to me that all of them were unharmed. I ralized how tragic i could have been but wasn't and thanked god for helping them out. At first no one new what was happening to them and if they were okay, but they all were and to me that is a blessing of god.

    October 18, 2010 at 6:01 pm |
  1010. (Jade)

    i think it was a very exciting yet scary experiance for all miners,and families for the rescue. the walls could cave in, some people could be scared of tight spaces, and they were exciteed to see theyre familys.

    October 18, 2010 at 6:27 pm |
  1011. Jacob

    I am glad that all the miners got out safly with out any harm to them. I think there was alot of patriotism behind the rescue of the miners. I am glad they can finally relax with there families and can sleep in there own beds.

  1014. Torri

    I think it's absolutely stunning how much everyone cares about the Chilean miners. I'm so happy that they finally are able to see their families after so many days underground. I would go CRA-ZY if I was stuck under there for as many days as they were. EXTREME respect and admiration for those miners!!!!

    October 18, 2010 at 7:23 pm |

  1017. cynise

    I think it is a great thing that the miners finally got ou.i also think think that it shows a lot about the miners' character because they said they don't expect to be famous.

    October 18, 2010 at 8:00 pm |
  1018. Brandon

    The miners gettin out is great they must of thought it was the end and when they were rescued it must of made so happy and the familys are reunited

    The teamwork that they showed was remarkable. They probably didn't fight much during those 69 days and some of them were even pretty energetic and excited when they reached the surface.

    October 18, 2010 at 10:17 pm |
  1037. Zachariah

    I was relieved that some of the miners came out safely. But even more worried about the other miners coming out, for they did not know what to expect and if they would make it out of the mine safely as the other miners.

    October 18, 2010 at 10:55 pm |
  1038. Mary

    I am filled with relief that the miners are finally home safe with their families after being stuck in that mine for 2 months.

  1040. soonhee

    I’m really happy that they are finally getting out. They never give up hope. Someone said God has never left us down here. I think that their dream was accordance with their righteous faith.
    Everyone would be so happy with miners.

    October 18, 2010 at 11:28 pm |

    Go Chile! I am so happy for those miners, and especially their families. They are so brave to go through those hardships.

  1042. Mikaela

    I am so glad that the miners have come out safely. But I am surprised most of them are healthy, shouldn't they be like sick from being underground so long without much movement.

    October 19, 2010 at 7:40 am |
  1043. Ashram

    I'm so relieved that they rescued all 33 workers. . . Now they can reunite with their friend and families, and return to their daily lives. . . Chi Chi Chi, Le Le Le!!!!!!

    October 19, 2010 at 8:21 am |
  1044. Kurumi

    I can't believe that the 33 miners buried under the ground were just fine with no severe injuries with 70 days underground.
    It's like a miracle.

    October 19, 2010 at 8:29 am |
  1045. John

    I thought that they were never going to get out.

    October 19, 2010 at 8:59 am |
  1047. Holly

    I feel so happy that they are finally out! I can't even imagine how hard it must have been to not be around their families for sixty-nine days! I don't know how they did it except by keeping up thier hope and faith and trying to stay busy. I'm just glad that they are all safe and back with their families finally!

    October 19, 2010 at 9:51 am |
  1048. Sami

    I think that is wonderful that miners are home with their familys. It is great that they survived for that many days.

  1049. Blake

    WHHHOOOOO!!! All the miners are out I think this is GREAT!!! As I watched them pull the miners up one by one and see how happy the family members were I felt greatful that they were finally going to get rescued. You HAVE to give credit to the family members because they toughed out and sat in those tents night and day.

    October 19, 2010 at 9:52 am |
  1050. Ace

    I think that if they didn't get the out it would have been tragic. But hnks to maother naturre th mine didn't cave in during the rescue. I'm glad they got them out so they can all resume their lives with their families. I think we should all thank the lord for this safe rescue.

    October 19, 2010 at 9:53 am |
  1051. Josh

    It's Good They Got Out. Their Families Were Probably Terrified!!!

  1052. Kirsten

    I have been watching the cnnstudent news at school for a little while now. As our class we have answered questions about the miners. We are glad they are out. And it is very overwhelming for families who didn't get to see them... At this time, it was a challenge for the miners at first. then with the help of people they made it out saftely.

    October 19, 2010 at 9:54 am |
  1053. Nellie

    I am so glad they got out and got to see there familes again!!! i would hate to be stuck in there for that long!! when i saw them get out of the mine i was astonished!! i felt relief!!

    October 19, 2010 at 10:36 am |
  1061. Mike

    I think that it's wonderful that those poor miners can get up again. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be trapped underground for 69 days. It must have been horrible.

    October 19, 2010 at 10:36 am |
  1062. Jessica

    When the news spread around the globe that the miners were rescued I litterally did scream. The program on T.V. showed the miners coming out and it was a great spur of hope for everyone's families. May they be blessed with new life.

    October 19, 2010 at 10:37 am |
  1063. Briauna

    I think being trapped is horrible. You cant see your family and you cant see light besides a flashlight. That experiance is horrible and I wouldnt be able to live with out seeing my family for so long. I would hate to do that. Especially if you had no water.

    I think it is awesome that we have finally succeeded in rescuing these miners. Being down there for almost 70 days would be enough to make anyone give up hope. It is amazing that these miners were in such good spirits. I'm glad everyone is ok!

    I didnt watch the whole rescue, but i think that the resuers did a great job!!! When i saw some of the miners come out from undr the ground, i thought that it was a blessing that they were still alive and moving.

  1066. Katie

    I think it is really happy that the chilans miners are out of the mines and are doing good. For the family members that were down there i bet the family up above were really excitded to soo them.

  1067. Lisa

    I think that it is really cool that they were trapped down there for that long and kept a positive attitude and helped each other out in everything they could.. I think that group of people are very caring and nice people and should be friends forever and longer.

    It was cool watching the resuce, but they should make a bigger tube to put the miners in like a elevator or something. We can be happy for the families of the miners though, cause they are almost out. We can give them food, such as doughnuts, milk, water, tang,etc. It would be kind of different to be in a mine for 69 days.

    October 19, 2010 at 10:40 am |
  1069. Steffi

    It is amazing to know that we have the technology and the skill to get the miners out safely today. If this would of happened 10 years ago they might have not got them out in time considering how far down they were.

    October 19, 2010 at 10:42 am |
  1070. DYLAN

    im so glad for them to be safe and sound whith ther familys and get to do what they like to do.

    I think it was good that we were able to save the minors. The minors deserve to be rescued.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:24 am |
  1073. Mark

    because of the chilean miners people know that everything doesn't have to end up bad.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:24 am |
  1074. Ronda

    I think that all the rescuers should be very proud of themselves. They helped save so many lives and reunite so many families togeether again. Those are the types of people that make our world a better place.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:25 am |

    I think this is a miracle in real life right before our eyes. Too many people look only at the bad side of life, and this is a time where we can focus on how the power of the people and through religon that miracles can happen.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:26 am |

    I think it is good that they are finally out. It has been a while but the persevered.

    i think it was okay when they forfeited. it's up to the team as long as the team decides to make the sacrificial loss.

  1079. Astro

    The fact that we were able to rescue all of the Chilean miners is awesome but what's even more amazing is the miner's faith that they would get out. I go on vacation for a week each year and I start to miss my friends but I'm still able to text them and keep in touch. And while I'm on vacation I'm always with family. I cannot imagine being alone for 2 months without contact from friends or family and not being able to talk with anyone except the people who were trapped with me. I don't know how they were able to stay positive and hold on for 2 months but they did. Now they can go on with their lives.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:27 am |
  1080. JB

    The people that rescued the miners worked hard day and night to get them out and above ground safely. The miners are happy to see their family members again and be able to see the sunlight. The rescuers should be proud of there hard work for getting the miners out safely:)

    October 19, 2010 at 11:27 am |
  1081. Donny

    I think that it is terrfic that we got the minners up safely. None of the minners died, and none were close to dieing. We must of done good above ground.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:28 am |
  1082. Wyatt

    It's great they still had hope when they were trapped, but even better that there out now !

    The chilean miners never give up hope for that they are in good health

  1085. Lynn

    i am very happy that they are out. They finally get to see their families and friends once again. Also, because they have been talking about it for a long time now, and im glad its finally over and done.

    October 19, 2010 at 11:35 am |
  1086. morgan

    i think the chillian miners and their familys are relieved that the miners are set free and are probably full of gratitude towards the rescuers

    October 19, 2010 at 11:37 am |
  1087. Beth

    Hi, i am so glad you got the Chilean Miners out of the whole ,or if you would've never heard about them then they would of starved and died. I am so glad it wasn't me down there. I hope the Chilean miners get out of the hospital soon. 🙂

    October 19, 2010 at 12:02 pm |

    I think it's unbelievable that all of them lived. I am so happy for all of them and their familys

  1090. Flo

    Personally, I found the story of the Chilean Miners very tragic. I was very happy that they were rescued, though. Imagine how hard it was for them to survive for those many weeks. Limited food and water, and very little contact with the world above. It definitely wouldn't be fun. I believe God had something to do with their miraculous rescue. They all stuck together and never gave up hope, and they survived.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:14 pm |
  1091. Elliott

    I think its great that they are being rescused. Its great that they could somehow find something to keep their hopes up and not give up.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:15 pm |
  1092. dakota

    i think that the miners getting out was not just the people but the miners hope and fear of never getting to see their families again.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:16 pm |
  1093. Emmanuel

    Im glad that the rescue went well, those miners have to go home and spend time with their families. They have been deicating their lives to mining! Im proud of the U.S. for helping Chile out.

    God Bless America

    October 19, 2010 at 12:17 pm |
  1094. macie

    I fell really bad for them. If you were stuck in a mine for 69 days do you think people would fell bad for you. I'm glad that they never gave up hope for being rescude. I'm happy for there lives being saved and glad that there familes never gave up hope.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:17 pm |

    well im really happy there out because theymake a big part in society!!and get our oil and gases!!!!! =) =)

  1096. Madeline

    I can't imagain how hard it must have been to be traped under ground, with no hope to hold on to. Now they are out and are with there family's, as they should be.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:21 pm |
  1097. Farmer

    I hope that the miners go home and live with their families. They deserve to be away from the mine. If you ask me they should be awarded and shouldn't have to work in a mine again.
    I have been praying for them and hope they recover.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:24 pm |
  1098. Daviz

    I was so happy to hear that the miners were rescued! They held on to the hope of getting out. They never gave up, they just kept thinking about their family.

    It's great that they got out and everything. Thats really awesome. I thoughtthat they would be in there until november. I was suprised that they got out already.

    October 19, 2010 at 12:26 pm |
  1101. Greggory

    Think about it. If you were trapped in a mine 2000+ under ground for 70 days with little to no light, wouldn't you be kissing the ground? If so, imagine how the Chilean miners feel. It is a very good thing that the miners got rescued, let alone them still being alive

    October 19, 2010 at 12:27 pm |
  1102. Devynn

    Im glad that the miners finally got out. Its AMAZING how they never gave up hope. I believe that God was with them the whole time.

    I am very happy for the miners and there families. I think the miners were very brave. It was a story going all over the world. Lots of people in the world watched them come up from the mine.

  1104. Alexie

    I'm glad they got the miners out and that there safe with there families. Hopefully it won't happen again. They were brave and had alot of courage.

    it was so touching to watch the excitment in the crowd.the miners were in a tough situation,but the kept cool and maybe had a little fun.now they have something exciting to tell the next generations.i hope the miners are doing well.(i hope that the newly weds are happy)

    October 19, 2010 at 12:42 pm |
  1106. Bailey

    Im happy that the miners are out. They had hope through it all. They never thought they were not going to get out or die. They are very brave. If I was a miner trapped in the mine i would be so sad and scared. I would miss my family more than anything. The miners have inspired me so much.

    October 19, 2010 at 1:05 pm |
  1107. Winston

    I am really happy the chilli miners are free from there prison, and that they can be able to live the rest of there lives the way they did before. Hopefully they are not emotionally scarred by this experience.

    This rescue has been greatley appriciated by many people, including me. I think that the rescuers have done a great job getting all the minors up on ground and safe. Also, think that they did an awesome job feeding the minors and keeping them busy and working them out.

    As i stayed up till midnight to watch the first miner be pulled up, I could feel everything the friends and family of the miners feel. I am so pleased to have these miners out of the earth, and to continue on with their lives.

    October 19, 2010 at 1:30 pm |
  1117. Anna

    I was so overjoyed, these men never thought that they would live, and get out alive. I am very glad that they are all ok.

  1118. Katelyn

    I'm really happy they have been rescued.I hope that soon they won't have to wear the extremely protective glasses but I know at the same time if they weren't they could be blinded because there eyes are so used to they light.I imagine it's much worse than when your teacher will turn on the light after CNN student news .

    October 19, 2010 at 1:55 pm |

  1127. noah

    i think that it is awesome that the chillean miners are safe because they have had a 3 month night of darkness and can finnaly see light which is awesome and that i feel bad for them because they had to loose a ton of weight to fit in the capsules and im just glad there finnaly safe

    October 19, 2010 at 2:39 pm |

    Its a good idea to help the miners to make the people of Chile happy because they were down there for like 3 months.

    Our Social Studies class have been watching the CNN Student New since the begining of the year and its been great! We've been following the Chile miners and its been a relief to hear that the Chile miners are safe. Thank God! 🙂

  1132. Kelli

    I believe the full story was wonderful hearing about the tradgity that could have occured if those miners were not rescued and i am thankful fo rthe saftey pf my family. In my journalism class we have discussed the horrid condition they have been living in; and thought of the miners and their families as heros as were the resucers. I think the govern ment involvement also helped their problems and showd the people of Chile that in chaos the government does care. which is always a good thing.....i am jsut thankful those families were reunited ❤

    October 19, 2010 at 3:38 pm |
  1133. tasha

    its good that they have been rescued!! one of them had played soccer before that. he is grateful to be with his family again!! 🙂 i think that its good that people did all that they could to help them.

  1134. Jake

    Well, this...is just, AWESOME! Unfortunately, it will probably be sort of forgotten, like 9/11, we'll all remember it – but we'll also forget!

    October 19, 2010 at 4:31 pm |
  1135. shayla

    i think it is really interesting how they are being saved it was relieving to know that the chilean miners are sound and safe!!!!:)

    i am happy for the chilean miner's families that their loved ones who came back from the dead. its good to know that hoping can sometimes lead to success.

  1137. Grayson

    I am awed and humbled by the miners coming out. Its amazing that they could go so long without hope then have hope returned to them.

  1138. Justin

    Its really AwEsOmE to know that we have people out there willing to help other people out. i thought it was really AwEsOmE knowing that the miners made it out safe and sound.

  1139. todd

    I think that it's amazing that the miners are free, if it was me down in that mine for 2 months I would be insane.

  1142. Nicole

    i think that is is wonderful that all the guys got out safely. i bet it was breath taking to be able to see their families, since their lives were at risk.

    For anybody that didn't shed at least one tear while watching this rescue, well they should be in tmeout. Congradulations to the minors!

    i don't usually care about the miners or anything like that but i'm extremely happy about this occasion. and i might start looking more into things like this

    October 19, 2010 at 7:12 pm |
  1145. Justine

    I think the rescue went really well. My family watched the whole ordeal on the live video footage on the computer. I am overwhelmed with joy that they have all come up safely!

  1146. Cali :)

    Its great that they were rescued outof the mine, now they are home with theyre familys.......i cant belive they survived *CHEERS for chilean miners*

    October 19, 2010 at 7:24 pm |
  1147. Miranda

    I am so happy that the miners are safe up at the surface. Those times in the mines must have been hard to overcome, with little food and drink, and knowing that you may or may not get out alive. I think the rescuers did a fabulous job on making sure the trip up was safe and efficient. Along with coming up with the smartest and fastest route to the surface.

    October 19, 2010 at 7:40 pm |
  1148. Samuel

    It must be a huge relief to the families and friends of the miners. Lets all be glad no one was hurt or killed!

  1149. Maddie

    I think it is amazing the way they got them out. This could lead to new inventions and its astounding how none of the miners were harmed or got sick

    October 19, 2010 at 8:44 pm |
  1150. Alhassan

    those 33 miners are very brave.their known for their patience and their positive attitude which led them out of the mine;(we are all happy)

  1151. Ellen

    When the miners were just trapped, it was such a tragic story, but knowing that now all of the miners are safe, it is a triumphant story of hope.

    October 19, 2010 at 9:00 pm |
  1152. Bethany

    I think that it is AMAZING how 33 men have been down in a mine for so long, and be as healthy as they are now...

    I am very HAPPY for them. They will get to see their families and see daylight!!!!! I was in florida when I found out the news I was so happy for them!!!!! Thank you CNN Student News for telling us about the miners

    I am sooo glad that they rescued the minors!!!!! I feel really bad for the minors and their families!! I would hate to be one of the families that had a family member trapped in a mine! I am just really glad that all the minors are safe and that hadn't happened to anyone in my family!!

    October 19, 2010 at 9:46 pm |

    I think its important. And will effect our country. Because we take an advantage of days. We are not promised tommorow. So live today as itis your last.

  1162. Kabir

    It seems very scary how those miners survived those many days without any chance of survival
    in a mine half a mile below the surface. It is a miracal how a those miners got out of there and how they survived those many days without food or any sign of life or water. It is cool how they survived and I was very happy that they got out fo the mines. I thank the rescuers who worked for months on making the drill that saved the miners.

    October 20, 2010 at 11:12 am |
  1163. Kimber

    I think it is good that the miners were able to come out of the mine. They probably have families that were worried about them. Over all I think it is cool that they are all out of the mine. 🙂

    October 20, 2010 at 12:56 pm |

    being trapped in darkness for two months?!?!? that is amazing!! its a big relief that everyone survived.

    I watched as all the miners came out of the mine. It was amazing to me that all of them were unharmed. I realized how tragic it could have been but it wasn't. At first no one knew what was happening to them and if they were okay.but they are safely out.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:54 pm |

    IT is so good that the miners are out safe. Right now the place they need to be is with there families

    I was so overjoyed when I heard by my friend that the first miner had came out I had to stay up even longer to see the last one come out after school.

  1170. Alannah

    I think that it is absolutely amazing that the miners are out. Their families miss them and they miss their families. I hope that they are all safe and healthy.

  1171. Timber

    Its great to know the miners are safe. I have been following this story on CNN Student News ever since it started just waiting for good new. I am super happy the miners were in good hands and their family most be overwhelmed with joy. I may not know them but they feel like long last friends finally home again.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:57 pm |
  1172. kyle

    I think its good to know that the miners got out. its funny that all got out on 10-13-10 if add up the date it adds up to 33 the date all miners got out.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm |
  1173. Dani

    I think that this is great because the miners can go home know and have a nice dinner with family. Also they can be free from the mine.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm |
  1174. Hannah

    I think its so amazing that they got rescued! They where down there for way too long. It's such a wonderful thing they are home with their loving family. One moment is tragic the next is a miricle. I think it is a truly beautiful thing too see them so happy!

    October 20, 2010 at 2:59 pm |
  1175. Damon

    I think its great that all the miners got out from down there this was a heart warming story to listen to.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:59 pm |
  1176. Bryce

    Yay!!!! finaly someone is finaly out and free of that death trap. That is very good news to here and i am glad they are free. Thank you and good luck. 🙂

  1177. Ricardo

    its agood thing that the miners have been rescued. they've been trapped down there since august. now that out from under, they can go see their families now.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  1178. Gabbyy

    It was amazing to hear about the good attitude of the miners and that they survived. It is so cool how that one little capsule can do all that. I felt really bad for the people that were in the mine and for there families. I am suprised that none of the minors went crazy.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  1179. Lexi

    I think that it's a great relief that the miners are out. If I was the miners, I would want to see my family and just hug them. Over all, I think that is great.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  1180. Zuriah

    I am happy to hear that the Chilean miners are out. The night that the last miner appeared on the surface, I was flipping through the channels and I paused to watch the last miner come out of that accursed mine.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:02 pm |
  1181. Lexie

    I am so glad that those men are finaly getting out of that dark depressing hole they been trapped in for so long. It's a very big relife to the famliy's of the trapped minners for sure.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:05 pm |
  1182. Zuriah

    I am happy for them, almost 70 days with only your co-workers! How terrible. They must have been really excited to get away from each other.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:05 pm |
  1183. Tyler

    I’m glad people get to see their kids and their wives again. If I was trapped down there I know its kind of selfish but, I would want to go first to see my family again.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:11 pm |
  1184. Bradley

    I think that it was pretty cool how the miner was saved by a fellow soccer player, especialy since he lost to the guy.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:26 pm |
  1185. joseph

    im glad they are finally out. Nearly 70 days undeground is long time. Everyone worked together to get them out.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:47 pm |
  1186. Ashtyn

    I'm glad they are got the miners out. It's a very dangerous experience and anything can happen to the people. It's good they got them out so that they can see their families and be happy.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:49 pm |
  1187. Hanna

    i'm very happy that they came out safe, because if they didn't i'm not sure how they would have survived... thank god that they're out now!!!

    October 20, 2010 at 3:51 pm |
  1188. Tess

    After more than 70 days in the mine, these men have survived what I would deem to be a catastrophe. I would have given up by day 3. They had an extraordinary amount of patience and I am so thankful they've been rescued.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:52 pm |
  1189. Kazabo

    I think that the Chilean miners are in for a real treat real fast. The 33 miners have been underground for about 70 days now and they are going to get out real soon. Many families are worried about the miners trapped and are wondering how soon they are going to get out and see the sun shine again. I hope that they all get out safe and sound and family and friends are together once again.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:52 pm |
  1190. Jennifer

    I think that’s it great that the miners are out of the mine so they can see their families and friends. It’s also lucky that all of the miners got out safely without any major injuries.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:54 pm |
  1191. Tierra

    If I were one of the 38 people I would not like it.I would miss my family and friends. But at least their getting out of their.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:55 pm |
  1192. Myu

    So far so good...let's just hope they all make it out safely! if anything I think they shouldn't be worried about all of them being rescued,(because there is almost no chance of the plan backfiring, am I right?) but are they ever going to get their sight back?!?!?!?!? if I spent 70 days underground I'd be more worried about going blind when I finally get rescued.

    October 20, 2010 at 3:55 pm |
  1193. Yamisake

    They had a 2 month sleep over with each other, no one else, no food or water until the first drill was able to get through and provide supplies. EVERYONE is more than glad to have them safe and sound

    October 20, 2010 at 3:58 pm |
  1194. Neema

    Its is very good that the Chilean miners are out and safe. Hopefully none of them have died.

    October 20, 2010 at 4:05 pm |
  1195. Jack

    Awesome. The Chilean miners have been rescued. I'm very happy that they're out and seeing their families. I also like that Oakley gave all of the miners sunglasses. Now I want to get trapped underground.

    October 20, 2010 at 4:11 pm |
  1196. Alyssa

    i think that thier familys did a good job encouraging them, i also think the miners side for soccer will win. i still have them in my prayers.

    I'm glad all 33 miners are back to the surface, I wonder how it was like down their, god knows it stuck down their.

  1201. Jay

    after so much bad things happening with the world, its glad to see a light at the end of the tunnel. im glad they got out unhurt. hearing it made my day.

    October 20, 2010 at 6:52 pm |
  1202. gabriella

    i think that we should all be greatful of the rescue crew who saved all of the 33 miners. and i really do get what they are saying when the miners said that god was with them the whole time. THANK GOD!!!!

    October 20, 2010 at 7:28 pm |

    October 20, 2010 at 8:46 pm |
  1205. Yura

    I think this is just amazing.
    It made me think there still are genurous people who willing to help other people. You know, in this world there are so many people who are very selfish. And I believe when people try to help and care for other people we will be living in a much better society.

    October 20, 2010 at 9:03 pm |

    October 21, 2010 at 10:06 am |
  1208. Kaleb

    I think its great news. Hearing that no one has died is excellent. It's sad to hear that the miners have to wear special goggles but I can understand because they were down there for a long time.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:19 am |
    • Kevin

      I think the priority was to keep the miners healthy and now we need to always have a backup tunel.

      October 25, 2010 at 12:35 pm |
  1209. baily

    I am so glad that the miners came out safe and sound. Even if not all of them are out. I strongly hope that none of them died or that would be a tragedy.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:20 am |
  1210. Leandra

    Wow I cant beliveve the miners have been under ground for like 2 months and have all survived. It must be really reliving to know that if your family member was stuck under ground that they are safe and sound now.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:24 am |
  1211. celest

    I bet they are really happy that they are going to get out soon. I hope they are going to be ok. I would not know what to do if i was stuck in a mine for two months. but at least i woudn't have to go to school.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:26 am |

  1214. Oibaf

    I am really happy the Chilean Miners are saved. It is bad to be in there for that long because there can be disasters like people dieing and people getting really sick. There also can be really worries from their families.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:37 am |
  1215. ASHTON

    I think it is so great and wonderful that these miners finally get ot go home to there loved ones. It just shows the detication that many people have and how people can reach out to one another to, help people they dont even know. I thinl its just great.

    October 21, 2010 at 11:39 am |
  1216. madelynn

    i think it was amazing!!!!!! i was so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don't think i would like that, traped half a mile under ground for two months. i would be worried that the cealing will collasp on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!but i am thrilled that they are out and back to their familes. my aunt was in Bandladesh so i could see how they felt

    October 21, 2010 at 11:54 am |
  1217. Guffey

    I'm glad that the whole thing is finally over for them. I can't imagine what it'd be like down there, and for so long. I like to think of myself as a strong person, but I'm not sure I could handle those conditions. They've got wills of the highest caliber, sticking it out like that.

    October 21, 2010 at 2:59 pm |
  1218. Alyia

    Im so glad that is finally over. I cant image what its would be like to go down there and also be down there for so long. They've got one of the highest caliber, sticking out like that

  1220. O

    I think it is great that all of the trapped miners made it out, and i prayed for all of the miners loved ones throughout the whole ordeal. It was a long, frightful six months but they all thankfully made it out. I was very excited when I saw all 33 miners were out safley and seeing their loved ones.

    October 21, 2010 at 4:09 pm |
  1221. Matthew

    God is great to have allowed all 33 miners to be rescued and to have them all uninjured. Hopefully they do not have any health issues

    October 21, 2010 at 5:36 pm |
  1222. Nadia

    I'm soo happy that the miners came up but I don't think its really fair that now China's had about the same thing happen and the U.S. woun't help. That's just mean.

    October 21, 2010 at 6:14 pm |
  1223. Ana

    I just hope every miner has been reunited with there family.... I also hope they drink plenty of water and gain full heath again.

    its very sad that those poor miners had to stay in that dark world of torcher.and stay there for 2months.

    October 21, 2010 at 7:07 pm |
  1227. Kimberly

    now that they finally escaped from that terible place and i think we should thank god for this miricale. 🙂

    October 21, 2010 at 7:09 pm |
  1228. Bailee

    I'm so happy that the miners got out. I was at school and i stopped in the hallway to watch one of the miners be rescued! And of course i was late to class, but when i was watching it i kind of felt relived. I felt as if i was related to one of the miners. It was a miracle!

    October 21, 2010 at 7:57 pm |

    it was a horrible thing that killed thousands of innocent animals i think theres alot of things that have been learned from this

    im glad i wasnt down there it would be pretty scary... im glad they are all safe now.

  1233. Jessa

    ‎33 miners were rescued on the 33rd week of the year; it took 33 days to drill down to them; they were brought up to the surface on 10/13/10 which =33. Pretty cool!

    October 21, 2010 at 11:40 pm |
  1234. Alan

    It's amazing how all 33 of the people were rescued from the mine. Things like these are once in a lifetime. Chile worked so hard to get them out and it just shows that hard work reallly pays off

    October 22, 2010 at 10:04 am |
  1235. emily

    while some may think that the chilain miners were unlucky to get down stuck down there but i think that its a good lesson for some people to get a better job then a minner 2000 feet stuck under ground!!

    October 22, 2010 at 10:08 am |
  1236. Patrick

    I think that the fact that we were able to play a huge role in the rescue of the 33 miners trapped under ground for two whole months really says something about the United states and how we are a caring and helpful country.

    October 22, 2010 at 10:09 am |
  1237. Jada and Emily

    I agree with Emily, that there is a good lession to learn here, but if they don't do the job who will? But too bad someone has to do it so might as well be them with all the expernce they went through (lol) and i think they should all get extria money for that to happen. But i wonder why it took soooooo long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😦 alwell they are out now 😄

    October 22, 2010 at 10:17 am |
  1238. Tahlia

    I watched the miners come out. It was really inspiring! It shows that nothing is impossible! The men are alive. They are back with their families. Rescuing the miners shows that if we put our minds to something we can do anything!

    October 22, 2010 at 10:25 am |

    It was a miracle that they escaped unharmed. I watched the first couple of miners be rescued and the joy in the families eyes was amazing.

  1243. Paolo

    I am relieved that all 33 miners are saved from underground god bless these miners. Now they just have to get their eyes checked and get used to the outside light. I am also glad that now they are out they don't care about fame all they care about is that they are relieved to have their familes and friends back.

    October 22, 2010 at 10:28 am |
  1244. Ke$ha

    I think that all of the 33 miners were rescued is a miracle. To stay own there that long is amazing. If i were down there I probly would of paniced.

  1248. Gabriela

    I think that its a good thing that there being rescude because it probably felt scary and disgusting under there..at least their safe though. If i was under there i would pray alot so i can get out.

    October 22, 2010 at 10:31 am |
  1249. naseer

    i think that it is good that they finally got the minors out after being in there for that long of a time. honestly i dont know how they were able to do it because if it was me i would have gone crazy and i probaly would have freaked out more in the rescue capsule because it is so small

    October 22, 2010 at 10:32 am |
  1250. Tatyana

    That was incredible how they made that special machine to take out the miners! Thank goodness there ok now they are still alive and well!

  1251. felipe

    It is so great that they will get to see their families again I think they have taught each and everyone of us to be patient and willing to be last we should all really take it to heart. I think that it was so beast because i was so happy when they got out ..:D I'm so happy that the miners got out. I was at school and i stopped in the hallway to watch one of the miners be rescued! And of course i was late to class, but when i was watching it i kind of felt relived. I felt as if i was related to one of the miners. It was a miracle

    Even that i am mot chilean i am proud. they never give up. they had to eat one tuna spoon. they knew they can do it there alive konw because of that.

    I think it is a miricale from the Lord. It was extrodainary and shocking for how long they survived.

    i am glad that the miners made it out of the mine safely. I just wonder why they didnt give the miners some sort of light source that could make them see better

    October 24, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  1265. Sarah

    This was a really good that they are being rescued. They have been stuck down there for acouple months. I felt so sorry for them. And if i was one of them I would have felt really good to got on the surface of the earth and see my family

    October 24, 2010 at 3:19 pm |
  1266. Lauren

    I think that this shows other families of miners if one of their family members get trapped in a mine to all ways keep hope.Also it may give miners that get trapped in mines the patients to stay calm.

    October 24, 2010 at 5:37 pm |

    Now that the miners are up I am relived. It was a scary time, even when its not your family trap and unable to see you and the sun. I am glad all the miners are safe and with there familys again.

    October 24, 2010 at 10:20 pm |
  1271. Matt

    If I were those guys I would feel like one of the toughest men in the world right now. I mean they spent what 70 days down there I mean that would be scary. Plus I can't imagine that they still did work when they were down there.

    October 25, 2010 at 12:02 pm |
  1272. Brandon

    Personally I think it's great that all of the miners got out of that mine alive. And it's grate that there are still living their lives without fear from their experience.

    October 25, 2010 at 1:09 pm |

    What a relief that the miners got out. Im so happy they got to see there families again! They did a great job keeping everything calm down in the mine.

    To see those 33 miners come out from the treacherous collapsed mine after 2 months, was truely inspiring. I can only imagine how horrible it was down there, but they stuck together and made it through.

    I am so glad that all the chilean miners got out safely. Also it was a miracle that they are all still very healthy. If that was me down in the mine i would be so happy to get out.

    It is amazing that the miners were able to live in the mine for so long. Then they were able to get all 33 miners out and into safe hands that were able to take care of them. It is excting to hear somehtign good when we have heard about nothing but terrorist attacks and storms.

    I am very glad that the miners got out safe! I hope we can all take away from this the message that mining is not safe, and we need to do more to protect miners, or not mine at all.
