Chile Miners Rescue: LIVE Updates (VIDEO)


Rescue efforts to bring 33 miners trapped underground to the surface have been successful, with the last of the miners being pulled up late Wednesday night.

The miners had been trapped underground for more than two months. Efforts to surface them took place on an individual basis using a specially-built cage.
