One of the Chilean miners brought to the surface, in October 2010. - HUGO INFANTE

Sixty-nine days buried alive. Ten years ago to the day, the incredible epic of the 33 Chilean miners began in a desert in the north of the country. A landslide in the depths of a copper mine that would lead to an extraordinary human adventure, followed by the entire planet.

By dint of patience and mutual aid, the 33 men imprisoned for weeks finally got out. But the heroes of yesterday are no longer so today and, with rare exceptions, have returned to anonymity. A decade has passed, and 20 Minutes invites you to relive this rescue on video.
