Friday marks the 15th Anniversary of the Quecreek Mine Rescue in Pennsylvania.

Miners were trapped 240-feet underground.

Teams worked for days to locate and rescue the miners one by one, using a steel capsule that was lowered beneath the earth’s surface.

After 77-hours of working, hundreds of people gathered to watch as the nine miners were pulled to safety.
