SANTIAGO, Chile – The 33 Chilean miners who were trapped deep under the earth for more than two months in 2010 are outraged over a decision to close the case against the mine owners.
The cave-in at the San Jose mine in the Atacama desert brought the mine's safety record into focus and put Chile's top industry,= under close scrutiny.
Mario Sepulveda became the public face of the miners. He told the Associated Press Thursday that the decision is a "disgrace" to Chile's justice system.
He says he feels so upset at what he calls an injustice that he wants to "dig a deep hole and bury myself again, only this time, I don't want anybody to find me."
