    Watching miners rescue from the Dom. Rep.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Eilhardm of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, was watching the rescue with his mother. When the second miner, Mario Sepulveda Espinace, was rescued, his mother was elated because he had the same name as her father, the late Mario Sepulveda. 'She was happy and it was really special seeing her like that. She got to remember her father and I got to share in some of that,' he said.

    I think the whole country is following. I can listen all TVs in my neighborhood tune with CNN and local news channels following the rescue by the second. My mom and I just rejoice since the second rescued miner's name is the same as my grandfather "Mario Sepulveda" who past away years ago. My mom was really excited a about it.
