Work to line the top of an escape shaft with metal tubing is expected to finish soon at the mine where 33 men are trapped in northern Chile. A winch and pulley will be installed and the shaft tested before the rescue begins, it is hoped, on Wednesday, according to BBC News. Amid the final preparations for the rescue the Chilean health minister said some of the miners were gallantly insisting they should be last to leave. The men have been entombed since the mine partially collapsed on 5 August. After 41 days of drilling and three separate rescue plans, engineers finally broke through to the miners on Saturday morning, sparking celebrations across Chile.
