Chilean Miner's Rescue Underway...

The highly-anticipated rescue operation to save 33 Chilean miners trapped half a mile underground is well underway and being executed flawlessly. With 3 rescue workers now underground with the miners overseeing the operation from below, the number of trapped miners is growing smaller as the hours pass.

If you missed the triumphant and tear jerking moment when the first miner Florencio Avalos reached the surface last night, check out great video provided by the Chilean government, below.
