President Obama: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the brave miners, their families, and the men and women who have been working so hard to rescue them. 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.”

The family of trapped miners Renan and Florencio Avalos spend time together a few hours before the start of the rescue operation in Copiapo, Chile, October 12

Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera hugs miner Florencio Avalos after Avalos was rescued from the the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine where he was trapped with 32 other miners for over two months near Copiapo, Chile
