The republic of Chile is known as one of economical stable country of Latin America.Its political leadership after getting rid of 17 year military regimes,took adequate economical and social reforms with in system and now it is recognized as strong democratic and welfare state and each coming year under elected government is showing trend of improved governance toward public welfare.
Internationally Chili got intentions of world viewers when its group of 33 miners were trapped in the copper and gold mine of San Jose, on August 5 when a cave in trapped them 2,300 feet (700 meters) underground.in unreachable point of tunnel.
Mine’s accidents are taken as part of routine jobs and considered as one of dangerous profession on underground level.
On August 8 rescue workers began drilling bore-holes into the mine to try to locate the miners.After 18 days of continuous digging with power of hope they had detected sign of life, when rescue workers heard tapping on the drill.
They were living on minimum food available in a shaft casing where all 33 got shelter so after finding signs of life ,rescuers plan to send plastic tubes called “doves” to the miners containing food, hydration gels and liquid nutrients and medicine.
A microphone has been lowered down a bore hole and vocal contact was resumed between rescuers and miners who burst into song, delivering a national anthem.
After seeing the critical nature of rescue job and inaccessible approach under available resources, Chilean officials immediately asked NASA for help on how the miners can remain sane and healthy while trapped underground awaiting rescue.
So rigorous efforts were made under mining ministry ,NASA officials ,physicians and presidency of Chile to expedite the whole process of rescue in effective manner.,During this period the miners were under supervision of trained physicians who were guiding the miners to do regular exercises to prevent muscle atrophy and mental disorders while living in abnormal confined place for more than recommended time.
So it is proved true that when there is will there is way and the rescue managers of Chili proved this theme of dedication for their buried survivals.
Ultimately having survived 69 days underground, the 33 miners began emerging from the bowels of the earth by sending steel capsule beneath 2000 ft below ground.
The whole world including President of Chili was witnessing the scene of reuniting with loved ones after a grueling, dramatic rescue made possible by a generous supply of U.S. equipment, manpower and ingenuity.
President Pinera who himself monitored the situation has delayed a trip to Europe to stay at the San Jose gold and copper mine be on hand to greet every rescued miner.
The whole scene of disaster was reverted to one of best rescue of the world through quick actions, prompt decisions and timely actions of authority. The President’s keen interest on such a public affair has added energy to other state officials to prioritize this job which is in interest of public affair and him now he has become the most popular politician in Chile. This rescue is a tribute not only to the determination of the focused rescue workers and the Chilean government It is now symbolically termed as the unity and resolve of the Chilean people who have inspired the world for last two months .This combination of hope, dedication, technology and continuous efforts produce a fine example of humanity work which can be remembered and practiced as a victory of human minds against disasters.
Congratulation to Chili miners for getting new life and Chili government for their successful efforts for their people.
