    I have been watching the news and am in tears, so emotional.

    The fourth miner came up in the tube to be greeted by his lovely wife and the president of Chile.

    What an amazing achievement. What a brilliant feat of engineering.

    4 down or rather up and 29 to go.

    They were supposed to start bringing the first miner up around 11pm GMT so me & DS sat & watched, we just wanted to see the first one out. But about 12pm they said it would be two hours before they would be bringing him out:( I've just watched the video now & he looks amazing, so well.

    It's brilliant news & so uplifting.;)

    It is pretty amazing.

    Yes, it is uplifting. Such a wonderful feat.

    I wonder what the aftermath will bring.

    im hooked too...amazing!
    been watching since 4am when the first came out.
    i must have been destined to watch....we decided to watch the first before we went to bed last night,they said it would be hours so we went up to bed.
    i then woke at around 4am for a wee and the radio(i sleep with radio on) said that the first was on way up...so i went down and put tv on about a minute before he came out and ive been watching ever since,minus the school runs and getting food although ive actually managed that in between them coming out,lol.

    I've seen them all come up too and i've cried at everyone. They say if there are no hitches the miners will be all out before the end of the day so they will be rescued on the 13/10/10 =33
    I find it moving how much faith all these men have,

    What an amazing achievement !!!

    A big pat on the back must go to all concerned and to the Chilean government for never giving up on the. It must have cost millions.

    It was amazing to watch and so great to see good news for a change. Even my teenager is hooked on watching it with me.

    The first thing my 4 year old asked when he got up this morning was "are the men out of the ground!!"

    Very emotional watching :D

    I've found this very emotional too. Just goes to show what can be achieved when people are determined

    The wife didn't turn up apparently she told press she wouldn't be there and wouldn't be watching, he must have known it would happen because he asked for the both to be there, His mistress came though!
    Think it was a big mistake to watch it all, i'm blooming shattered!
