The Start To End

First at the San José, rocks collapsed and trapped 33 miners 2,000 feet underground. After that people from all around the world came to the site to help rescue them. Then after they drilled from the surface to the shelter they hoped they were in, the miners attached a bag with two letters in it. They get fresh supplies from the drill there on out. After 3 months they finally freed the miners and brought them to the surface. The picture shown below shows the drill thats hollow inside.
