Chilean Miners Rescued, Became Celebrities
Posted on October 14th, 2010 in Chile | 1 Comment » |
The 33 Chilean miners who had spent more than 69 days trapped in a 624 meters (2,050 ft) underground mine has finally been freed late last night. The efforts took a total of 22 hours starting from the time the first miner was brought to the surface until the last miner was pulled from the mine. After more than 2 months of suffering, the previously unknown miners now have plenty to look forward to, that is if they are willing to take up the offers available to them.
Amongst the many gifts that they have already received, the Manchester United and Real Madrid of Spain soccer teams has invited the freed miners to watch them play in Europe.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency has also gifted the miners with five sets of space underwear that cannot be purchase anywhere.
Sunglasses mogul, Oakley, also donated 33 pairs of their $450 Radar line shades to the miners.
Palo King, Steve Jobs, announced today that all 33 Chilean miners will receive Apple’s newest iPods.
A Greek firm has also offered an islands tour to the miners.
Just when we thought that the flooding of gifts and invitations are going to stop, a flamboyant local businessman has given each of the miners a whopping $10,000 USD per person.
Do you guys think that these guys deserved the gifts and invitations they have received. They all have been down there for a very long time. Let us know in the commentary below.
