“Mission Accomplished” on the Chile Minors Rescue

 

From the moment the first miner, Florencio Avalos, was watched by the world leaving the Phoenix capsule, it took just 21 hours and forty four minutes to rescue the last man.

The foreman, 54-year-old Urzua, had bravely supported his thirty-two men ever since August 5th, as the mine collapsed leaving the 33 men trapped 2,050 feet (625 meters) beneath ground level. They endured 69 days in airless damp conditions.

For the first seventeen days the miners´ biggest fear was that the world would believe them to be dead. 1,500 reporters broadcasting the news as it unfolded world-wide. Finally, as the rescue workers leave, a flag remains saying "Mission accomplished".

  Fantastic!!  
 
What a great feeling for the miners and their families

  Remember the others  
 
Meanwhile in China thousands of miners die every year in mining accidents. It´s great that these guys made it out but lets not forget countless men that die that don´t make front page news.

  Oh damn...  
 
I hope Dubya didn´t land there in a flight jacket... If so it may still be another dozen years at least until all of them are out...

  Good news  
 
I been worried sick for those guys. Being buried alive is probably my biggest fear.

  Too overconfident  
 
I was very concerned when the miners were still in their tomb and the Chilean President was already giving speeches like it was a done deal. The sign "Mission Accomplished" was another thing that worried me. I couldn´t help but think about the Titanic, the ship that "God Himself couldn´t sink". All it would have taken was an earthquake and it would have been over for the still trapped miners.

  Mission Accomplished?  
 
Did they announce this from the deck of an aircraft carrier?
 
  by: slavefortheman     10/14/2010 06:54 PM     
  Umm  
 
"airless"...?

  "Mission accomplished" ..  
 
certainly had a better meaning than the last historical moment it was announced. So personally I am pleased the words were written in a positive way and for good reasons! Making a very pleasant change.

That was weighing on my mind all the time and I missed chatting with you guys. :) Thanks.
