The rescue is underway of the Chilean miners

Florencio avalos silva is on his way up in the capsule now, he's been trapped there since August with the others and he's the lucky one to get out first.
I can't help but be moved and watch this until they start to appear above ground.
What a wonderful thing this is that they have managed to live, managed to be kept in touch with the world outside, and that the rescue has started!
oh i feel fluffy and thankful for them all being safe so far

That is wonderful to see, and i'll admit to being a bit tearful! 14 mins and a few seconds to emerge 600 odd metres from underground. How amazing watching the first person he gets to hug is his little son. His 21 year old brother is down there and will be out tomorrow hopefully.
he's just got a big from the president. so wonderful
One down, 32 to go!
