Trapped Chile Miners Get More Than 1,000 Rescue

Rescue operations to bring 33 trapped miners to the surface are officially underway in Chile.

The miners have been trapped underground for more than two months. Efforts to surface them will take place on an individual basis using a specially built cage

And you thought your job was a grind. The Chilean miners being resurrected from their rocky tomb are glimpsing the sun again today thanks to an amazing mix of faith and fortitude. Watching them (above) drop to their knees to thank their luck makes you ashamed to complain today. Is it just me or is this video better than anything TV has to offer?

Sepulveda appeared well aware of his budding options. His performance exiting from the shaft appeared to confirm what many Chileans thought when they saw his engaging performances in videos sent up from below - that he could have a future as a TV personality.

But he tried to quash the idea as he spoke to viewers of Chile's state television channel while sitting with his wife and children shortly after his rescue.

"The only thing I'll ask of you is that you don't treat me as an artist or a journalist, but as a miner," he said. "I was born a miner and I'll die a miner."
