From NY, Chileans watch miraculous rescue at home
You didn’t have to be Chilean to be riveted by the coverage of the ongoing mine rescue, but there was a special sort of pride today at places like Los Andes bakery in Sleepy Hollow.
The bakery has been a gathering spot for local Chileans to talk about the amazing rescue of 33 miners who were trapped for 69 days.
Others watched the televised miracle in their country from their homes in Westchester.
“I am very emotional and nervous, too,” said Pilar Llanos, who lives in Yorktown. “I have been here six years and I miss my country very much. It’s been a hard time for the country. First the earthquake and now this.”
