One of the 33 Chilean miners whose dramatic rescue was broadcast worldwide is touring the U.S. to call attention to the suffering of earthquake victims.
A Chilean miner ran, walked and hobbled his way to the finish line of the New York City Marathon, showing the determination that helped him survive more than two months trapped underground.
The New York City Marathon always brings out the stars of the running world. This year, one of them is someone who’s never competed in any big-time races.
From complete anonymity to worldwide superstardom, Chile’s Edison Pena, one of the 33 miners who survived being trapped in a mine for 70 days, is soaking up the Big Apple’s welcome.
Edison Pena gave the term “underground comedy” a whole new meaning when he appeared on The Late Show Thursday night.
