A third of Chilean miners out

One-third of the trapped Chilean miners are now up and out of their half-mile-deep dungeon.

No. 11 came up into the desert sun just over 10 hours after the rescue capsule dubbed "Phoenix" extracted the first miner.

He is 55-year-old Jorge Galleguillos and he's worked the length of Chile in various mines.

Officials said before the rescue kicked off around midnight Tuesday that the first four miners out would be fit and the next 10 would include those with health issues.
