...miners are out. Happy I am for the Chilean people and my joy goes out to the miners and their family. Two thumbs of to all the rescuers and all the folk that contributed to this wonderful acccomplishment.

Re: Wonderful excellent news; all the Chilean ....

I was watching the rescue on and off yesterday, and this morning have seen all the miners and the 6 rescue workers are now out of the mine

Congratulations go to all involved, i hope they all have a speedy recovery and get over there ordeal soon

What a history making event ( and i do admit to shedding the odd tear at some of the emotion showed)

Let's just hope they clean up their acts with regards to miners safety now, especially the smaller run operations, hundreds of Chilean miners die each year working in unsafe conditions without so much hue and cry. Having said that, it is a rare good news story in a bleak news world and it goes without saying, we hope all concerned well for the future.

Just an observation.....why had none of the trapped miners grown a beard while underground for 69 days?

I thought that at first, then when you looked at older images they had beards etc, so presumably when they where sent supplies down, toiletries were included

Just before ascending, the miners requested and rec'd shampoo and razors so they could shave and look presentable.

I must admit, I think it would be the last thing on my mind if I'd been underground for 69 days, but yes I conceed the point.
