Exclamation Who rescued the miners?


Schramm Inc. of West Chester, Pennsylvania built the drills and
equipment used to reach the trapped miners.

Center Rock Company, also from Pennsylvania, built the drill bits used to
reach the miners.

UPS, the US shipping company, delivered the 13-ton drilling equipment
from Pennsylvania to Chile in less than 48 hours.

Crews from Layne Christensen Company of Wichita Kansas and its subsidiary
Geotec Boyles Bros. worked the drills and machinery to locate and reach
the miners and then enlarge the holes to ultimately rescue them.

Jeff Hart of Denver Colorado was called off his job drilling water wells
for the U.S. Army's forward operating bases in Afghanistan to lead the
drilling crew that reached the miners.

Atlas Copco Construction Mining Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin provided
consulting on how to make drilling equipment from different sources work
together under differing pressure specifications.

Aries Central California Video of Fresno California designed the special
cameras that were lowered nearly a mile into the ground sending back
video of the miners.

Zephyr Technologies of Annapolis Maryland, made the remote monitors of
vital signs that miners will wear during their ascent.

NASA Engineers designed the "Phoenix" capsule that miners would be
brought to the surface in, and provided medical consulting, special diets
and spandex suits to maintain miners' blood pressure as they're brought
back to the surface.

Oh, and Canadian-based Precision Drilling Corp. and South-African company
Murray & Roberts, drilled backup rescue shafts in case the American rig
failed. Which it didn't.

Default Blue...,

Such is good to know about We Americans as a whole.

Still,...same good info makes me seriously wonder.
Just how-in-the-hell can many U.S. Ruling Elite & notables continually low-rate, bad-
mouth & apologize for The Most Charitable, Generous & Overall Helpful people on earth?


Are such stupidly: "Talking Heads" NUTS???

I hadn't seen anywhere this list of who all was involved either.

Makes me proud of our people.

Gret list of great Americans and American companies! Thanks for posting this, as a way of showing how American ingenuity, when put to work, can make miracles happen. Now, if our own government will just the hell out of the way.....

And please maintain this list, in case America needs some professionals for the next time we have a crisis. Maybe we should have called them and the Chilean government to fix the Gulf oil spill.............

Default Scout,

Good thinking & Good suggestions.
I might only add to make that list mandatory & top priority reading,...EVERYWHERE!

However, it truly is sad how little (if any?) acknowledgement was given such caring & helpful
Americans & American Companies (Canadian Co. also), and much like what also NOT RECEIVED
by Chiliean EMS people.

I believe that such EMS types knowingly Volunteering selves into a possible ONE WAY:
"Mission Impossible" are actually The True Heroes. The miners were accidentally forced being there.

Didn't hear much about Those Brave Volunteers afterwards, either.

Neil
