2:20 AM ET UPDATE: Juan Illanes reaches surface, 3rd out of 33 trapped in #Chile mine for more than 2 months
UPDATE from PopUpCommontater: I apologize for the interruption in coverage of the miner’s rescue LIVE cam. At the least opportunistic moment my satellite coverage crashed. I can only assume that a bazillion people have been following this rescue mission in unison which has slowed down the internet immensely. With this in mind, I regret to inform you that my coverage will be less frequent. However, I will attempt to periodically update my readers as appropriate. It will take more than a day to bring up all the miners. Lastly, I give God all the praise and glory for this first successful miner emerging from his underground prison. Let us pray that all miners are rescued successfully. Ciao for now.
