The last of the 33 miners trapped deep underground in northern Chile for more than two months has been rescued.
Luis Urzua, the shift supervisor who was credited with helping the men survive the first 17 days before rescue teams made contact, was greeted by his family and President Sebastian Pinera.
The six rescuers sent down to assist the miners must now be winched up.
Many of the miners have severe dental infections and some have eye problems. One has been diagnosed with pneumonia.
But the Health Minister, Jaime Manalich, stressed that all appeared to be in far better condition than expected.
The men have been trapped underground since 5 August, when a rockfall caused a tunnel to collapse.
President Pinera meanwhile told the BBC he believed the rescue operation would change his country’s image in the world.
