Miners trapped in Chile mine for 17 days are alive

Rescuers in Chile have made contact with 33 miners trapped in a mine for the past 17 days, and all of them are alive.

Despite being buried nearly 700 metres underground, they were able to attach a handwritten note to a drill that reached the area where the miners were sheltering.
