The rescues were astonishing. 33 men were elevated from nearly half a mile beneath the Earth’s surface. They spent 69 days underground, and doctors were concerned about their mental and physical health.
All of the men appeared to be well, and in good spirits. They hugged loved ones, thanked rescue workers and waved to well-wishers before being whisked away to a nearby medical facility. The tale of these brave men, however, is far from over.
