2010 Copiapó Mining Accident
The Heroes of the Mining Incident

Jeff Hart, Matt Staffel, Doug Reeves and Jorge Herrera are all drillers that helped to rescue the 33 miners trapped underground during 2010′s Copiapó mining incident that took place in Chile. Here, a reporter interviews the four men on various aspects of their rescue mission. They discuss the type of equipment and unique methods they used which allowed them to rescue the men in 33 days, a much shorter time than was originally predicted for the mission. When asked how this experience has changed them, Staffel expressed it as “the most important thing” he’s ever done. The drillers also put emphasis on how much more they now appreciate the time they spend with their loved ones since the miners could not be with their families for such a long period of time.
