After 21 days of living trapped in a Chilean mine, family members of the miners were able to get a visual of their loved ones as the first video of the men and their living conditions reached the surface today. The video shows the men in relatively good spirits, singing the Chilean national anthem and playing dominos. But the fact is that there is a long, arduous process ahead in rescuing the miners. When the news of a four-month timeline was initially announced, we reported on the health concerns that lie ahead.

For now, it's just good to see that the men are in positive spirits.
