Workers operate a drill in the rescue effort for 33 miners trapped in the collapsed San Jose mine in Copiapo, Chile, Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010. Thirty-three miners have been trapped deep underground in the copper and gold mine since it collapsed on Aug. 5. On Friday, rescuers managed to drill a hole to where the miners were trapped, opening a way to pull them to freedom. (AP Photo/Aliosha Marquez)
