Like, literally trapped, about 2,000 feet beneath the Earth’s surface with hardly any food or electricity.

In 2010, everyone was talking about it. The collapse sparked an international media frenzy.

When miner Yonni Barrios was rescued, the woman who greeted him was his mistress, not his wife. Yikes!

Eventually, all the miners were rescued and Chile celebrated like crazy.
