Withstanding seemingly insurmountable circumstances, the Chilean mine rescue operation points to the extraordinary courage of not only the trapped miners, but also the rescuers who risk their own lives to save others. For instance, mining engineer Manual Gonzalez who was the first person down the shaft and the last one out. He had vowed to stay until they were all evacuated - and stayed true to his word as all the 33 miners and five rescuers made it to safety first.
