The 17th person to be rescued from the mine, Omar Reygadas, 56, has reached the surface.

The 56-year-old widower dropped to his knees holding a bible after hugging rescuers and family members.

His children Omar, Marcela and Ximena kept a diary for two months describing the long wait to finally meet him.
