Mine engineers prepare to construct winch

Engineers are continuing preparations for the evacuation of 33 miners trapped underground for 66 days.

A winch and pulley will be installed and the shaft tested before the rescue begins.

Amid the final preparations for the rescue the Chilean health minister said some of the miners were gallantly insisting they should be last to leave. Tim Willcox reports from Copiapo.
