33 miners to be re-birthed by Phoenix..feel the meme?
Chilean President Sebastian Pinera arrived at the mine site where rescuers are preparing to free 33 men trapped about half a mile underground for the last two months in the world’s longest mine rescue.
Pinera, who arrived by helicopter after visiting Ecuador, was briefed on the operation by Mining Minister Laurence Golborne and rescue team leader Andre Sougarret. Rescuers aim to free at least one miner tonight after a drill reached the tunnels that have been their home since Aug. 5.
“We hope to conclude today, the 69th day since the miners were trapped, with at least one on the surface,” Golborne told reporters at the San Jose mine. “That’s the goal we’ve set and we’re working as hard as we can for them.”
Rescuers completed practice runs yesterday in which they rehearsed the extraction and transportation of the miners to a nearby hospital, Health Minister Jaime Manalich said. Medical workers are focused on ensuring that the miners are prepared to rise to the surface in a process that could prove physically and emotionally stressful, he told reporters.
Five rescue workers probably will travel down the well to assist from the underground tunnels, remaining until after the last miner has resurfaced, Golborne said.
U.S. President Barack Obama issued a statement saying his “thoughts and prayers” are with the miners, their families and the rescue crews.
“While that rescue is far from over and difficult work remains, we pray that by God’s grace, the miners will be able to emerge safely and return to their families soon,” Obama said.
