SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Chile's president says all 33 miners trapped in a collapsed mine for 17 days are alive.
Miners say they heard hammering noises when they sent a new probe 2,257 feet (688 meters) deep into the collapsed gold and copper mine near the site of a shelter where they has hoped the workers had escaped.
Rescuers say a probe sent into the mine came back with a paper message written in red letters saying, "All 33 of us are fine in the shelter."
