Exit of miner #20 (44 anos) was the most moving I witnessed, though his was also the only exit today that I caught. His mother (?) was stood clutching a teatowel of the Virgin Mary, as opposed to the Chilean flag. He exited the human thermos and sank to his knees and engaged in a lengthy, devout looking prayer before he did owt else or muttered a victory cry. The mama, if in fact she be his mama, might a been his Mrs, gave the Virgin Mary a shake and a further clutch, until he was finished, whereupon she hugged him, with the instinct and impetus of a rugby tackle.
