Photos from Chile

The rescue of the 33 Chilean miners trapped 700 metres underground after the collapse, on August 5th, of the San Jose mine near Copiapo, has to have been one of the most uplifting events of recent times.

The men were kept alive over that time by supplies delivered through narrow holes drilled down to them, and kept hope through video conferences with family.

Here is a collection of 49 photos of the scenes around the mine near Copiago.
