From the BBC News website:
“Rescuers have drilled through to the underground chamber where 33 Chilean miners have been trapped since August. The breakthrough at the San Jose mine came shortly after 0800 local time (1200 GMT), sparking celebrations. It means efforts to remove the miners through the tunnel should begin within days.”

This is wonderful news. Every time I hear about the miners, I keep hoping that they all make it out alive. They have been trapped deep underground since 5 August, and they initially lost contact with the outside world for 17 days! It’s hard to imagine how they are feeling. I hope they all become millionaires when they return to the surface.
