Fifth miner emerges from Chilean mine

A fifth miner _ the youngest of the 33 _ has been rescued in Chile from gold and copper mine.

Jimmy Sanchez is 19 years old and is the son, grandson and brother of miners.

His brother and grandfather have worked in the San Jose mine where Sanchez and the others had been trapped since Aug. 5.

As he exited the rescue capsule, Sanchez was given a flag of his favorite soccer team, Universidad de Chile, which he raised.

He is the father of a 4-month old.

Sanchez says he thinks God may have wanted him to stay in the mine for a while to let him think about changing his life.

He said that he's "been thinking and I'm going to change a lot."
