Against All Odds: Rescue at the Chilean Mine
In 2010, rescuers in Chile raced to locate 33 miners trapped in the San José mine and lift them to safety through nearly half a mile of solid rock.
More than two months after the mine collapsed, the world watched as the men emerged one by one from a specially designed rescue capsule, looking healthy and joyous. This unlikely rescue is a tribute to the extraordinary teamwork of experts and officials from Chile and around the world.
