Mario Sepúlveda had been screaming during his ascent, but everything was OK. In fact, it’s better than OK. Sepúlveda is now a free man, the second miner to emerge in Chile.
And he wasn’t screaming alone, at least not after he came out of the hole. Sepúlveda led loved ones and rescuers in Chile’s national cheer.
Perhaps the ham of the group, it appears that he didn’t come up the shaft alone — he brought some souvenirs! The extroverted miner pulled rocks out from a satchel and started handing them to people all around.
Turning to Mining Minister Laurence Golborne, Sepúlveda said “Hola Jefazo!” That translates to “Hi Big Boss!”
Is there any question why he was the narrator for the videos?
