The story of what happened.

Watch the rescue live.

 

Just an inspiring story. I'm not sure how many of you have been following this since it was discovered the miners were still alive down there, but through this ordeal these 33 men have displayed courage and perseverance like I never knew existed. Since Aug. 3 they have been trapped a half mile under the ground, and now (as of the posting) there are only 16 left, with the rescue effort going ahead of schedule and running more smoothly then anyone would have dreamed to hope. This is one of those things that unites people no matter what the differences, and I just wanted to post something to maybe brighten everyone's day with a really great story.

 

Now, who wants to take bets that by the time this is all over there will be a Terrible Towel on camera SOMEWHERE at this rescue...
