Government officials in Chile reported that they gave pensions to 14 of the 33 miners who were rescued in the San Jose mine in Copiapo, Atacama Desert.
Cecilia Morel, who took charge of the delivery, said: “Each of the 14 miners will receive an amount of approximately $ 530 per month after their health conditions are not enough to work but also it was taken into account age and the agreement of the miners themselves”.
“Now we see them all alive and looking good. But the trauma was not free. They were famous for a disaster that still causes them sequels,” she added.
