Photo of the Day: Chilean Miners Rescue

The first of 68 miners was rescued last night/early this morning at 12:11 a.m.  [via NY Times]

update: The Big Picture has a selection of photos of the rescue.

And here is some raw video courtesy of the AP:

Also keep in mind that there is nothing miraculous about this rescue at all.  All praise should be heaped on the mining company for adhering to safety regulations and engineers for concocting a plan to rescue the trapped miners.  17 of the 33 miners have been rescued as of this moment in time.
