Can you imagine what it must have been like for these 33 men? Sunday, 10/10/10 , they will be brought up, one by one. They have been receiving food and water and now there is a way out! This is truly a miracle! Thank God for this day! They are so excited; they're ecstatic! And who could blame them? :p

It's still a long, difficult process to get each of them out. It'll be a few days before they all make it. And they're fighting over who goes first. Not what you'd think, though - most of them want each other to get out first.

Nice, huh? :grin:

This is a wonderful end to this story! I've been following it off and on. So happy that they are finally going to be free! I can only imagine the bond these men share now, being trapped together that long underground.
