San Jose Mine, Chile— Globe and Mail Update
A cement truck has arrived at a Chilean mine as crews enter the final stages of rescuing 33 men who have been trapped deep underground since August.
Workers must pour a cement foundation for a winch that will soon be installed to lift the miners to safety. The winch has been specially designed to gently tug the men to surface; engineers have spared no expense to provide a comfortable ride intended to avoid inducing panic during the ascent.
