Last of 33 miners rescued in Chile


The final miner has been rescued from the San Jose mine in Chile after more than two months trapped underground, amid jubilant celebrations at Camp Hope.

Luis Urzua's rescue marks a successful operation to free all 33 miners who were trapped underground since 5 August, when a rockfall caused a tunnel to collapse.

Known as Don Lucho among miners on his shift, Mr Urzua had made maps of the area where they were trapped to aid rescue efforts.
