UPDATE: WEDNESDAY, 8:30 AM: ALL MINERS RESCUED …

All 39 miners trapped in a mine west of Sudbury are now back on the surface.

The last of them was brought to the surface early this morning, after spending more than two days underground.

They were trapped on Sunday after attempts to move a piece of machinery damaged the elevator that transports them into and out of the mine.

The miners evacuated using a series of escape ladders….some from as deep as 12-hundred meters….assisted by special rescue crews.
