O Morales visits freed Bolivian miner

Bolivia’s President Evo Morales has also visited the San Jose mine to celebrate the freedom of a man from his country.

Carlos Mamani is a machine operator who had only been working in the mine for a few days before he was trapped with the others.

There were light-hearted scenes as both Bolivian and Chilean leaders greeted the miner, the fourth to be freed.

The 23-year-old, who is married with a one-year-old daughter, was the only foreigner among the group of 33.

At the mine head, Morales thanked the Chilean authorities and said he did not know how Bolivia would repay its debt.

“It’s incredible, but real,” he said. “The Bolivian people won’t forget the effort made by the Chilean president, and for that I want to say thank you, the Chilean people. Thank you for the rescue of our brother Carlos Mamani, and for our brothers, the miners from Chile.”

President Morales said his team would consult
medical experts to see whether the Bolivian miner could return home with him.

Carlos Mamani has reportedly been deeply scarred by his experience and never wants to go down a mine again.
