    Anyone watching the miner rescue in Chile?

    They just pulled the 10th person up from underground, each one takes about 45 minutes now to pull them up 2000+ feet.

    got it running in small screen on my work machine - BBC live coverage. Just missed a bit whilst I walked home and back for lunch. Just heard a someone here say that the side of the tunnel is wearing though? Anyone heard that? I certainly haven't! What amazes me is their reactions when they're being let out!

    Can't help but think the coverage is there in case 'something happens'.
    Very happy for the miners and their families though, must have been a very difficult few months

    Im sure when it first happened they were reporting that they would struggle to have them out by christmas. This is pretty good going, and great to see good news on the news for once.

    I'm amazed at how narrow the capsule is.

    I was watching it in the early hours of the morning when they got the first one out. Amazing and emotional stuff. Let's hope they get them all out without mishap.

    Bet the poor sods will be expecting to be cleaned, shaven and attend a state dinner with El Presidente in front of the Worlds media within a day or two.
