The world’s seven major rescue miracles

  What is a miracle? The miracle is “extremely difficult to do, but it has been done.” The miracle is “not likely to happen, but it has happened.” The miracle is a sequel, and the miracle is “returning to life.” What creates a miracle is the perseverance of humanity, the unyielding vitality, the calm and decisive determination, and the courage to explore hard. Let’s take a look at the following rescue miracles, and experience the miracle of life brought about by the rescue.

  The miracle in the history of China’s mine disaster

  On the eighth day, they were finally saved. On March 28, 2010, when the miners were excavating a new mine road, they accidentally smashed an old mine filled with water, and the spouting water was immediately trapped underground by 153 miners. Rescue workers started the rescue day after day, but hopes soon became rampant. On April 2, a knocking sound came from the depths of the mine, and the rescuers shook their spirits. They immediately sent milk and glucose to the mine and kept yelling to encourage people in distress. Three days later, rescuers rescued 115 survivors from the life raft, and most of the survivors were in stable condition. China is up and down for this.

  Miracle on the Hudson River

  On January 15, 2009, TV viewers stared at the TV set. Yes, yes, that scene is rare: on a afternoon in the winter, a jetliner floats on the waters of the Hudson River in New York. However, it was also eye-catching that the passengers and crew on board were safely evacuated – they quickly withdrew from the stalled American Airlines Flight 1549. So who is the “culprit”? It turned out to be a group of geese: when the plane left LaGuardia airport, they caught the double-sided engine of the plane. Captain Chesley Salenberg and co-pilot Geoffrey Skiles were considered to have achieved the most successful water landing in aviation history.

  Rescue baby Jay

  People know the city of Midland, Texas, because it was the childhood residence of George W. Bush, but before the city became famous, it was already the focus of attention. One of the most sensational news events in American history – a baby named Jessica was trapped in a well for two and a half days. On October 14, 1987, 18-month-old Jessica McClure fell into an 8-inch-wide, 22-foot-deep waste well in his aunt’s backyard due to a lack of care. After 58 hours, she was rescued. When Jessica was rescued from the well, a photo of her face bandage received the Pulitzer Prize.

  After McClure grew up and spoke, she received a few interviews. In the meantime, she bluntly revealed that she did not remember what happened at the time, but she was “proud” for her scars because she “escaped”. Now 24 years old, she is married and has children. In less than a year, she will receive a trust fund worth one million dollars. The money was donated by her kindhearted person in her name. In order to praise her who was still a toddler, she was able to sing the song of “Winnie the Pooh” for nearly three days.

  NASA repairs Hubble telescope

  For a machine, running for 19 years is long enough. In April 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope began its outer space adventure, but after 2000, its battery was exhausted and the sensor could not be detected automatically. Previously, NASA also carried out four repairs on this telescope, but most of them were minor repairs. This time, Hubble needs to undergo a thorough overhaul. After abandoning the 2004 maintenance operation, NASA changed its mind. In 2009, a group of astronauts took the Atlantis spaceship to the front of this inoperable telescope. They used a huge arm-shaped device to pull Hubble out of its orbit and place it in the cargo hold of the Atlantis. After five space walks, the astronauts finally returned Hubble into space. This time it will run at least until the end of 2014. When the telescope finally runs out of power, it may be the day of its “retirement.”

  Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571

  On October 13, 1972, the Uruguayan Air Force 571 crashed into the Andes. At that time, the Uruguayan football team and their friends and family were on board, for a total of 45 people. Since the chances of surviving were negligible, the search operation ceased after eight days of collision. Some people were killed on the spot after the collision, while others were suffering from injuries and severe cold in the mountains. As the days passed, the survivors gradually became desperate, and they had little choice. After the only remaining food—a few chocolates and a few bottles of wine—was consumed, they finally made a decision: eating the meat of dead friends and teammates. In the end, Nando Parado and Roberto Canesa struggled for 12 days, and on December 23, 1972, they rescued and saved the lives of themselves and 14 other passengers. After the plane crash, they spent 72 days on the snow-capped peak, which is incredible. The 1993 film “The Rest of the Day” was inspired by their true escape experience.

  Submarine sinking

  On the morning of May 23, 1939, the US Navy “Shark” submarine sank. At that time, the brand-new submarine representing the world’s most advanced level was conducting a routine diving test near the coast of New Hampshire. At this time, a water supply valve suddenly failed, and the water quickly poured into the engine room and crew cabin of the submarine. Fallen. When the sister sharks of the “Shark” discovered the sunken hull, 33 people were still alive and could keep in touch with the outside world through the Morse code. The top commander of the submarine, Navy Captain Oliver F. Naquine said in the code: “The situation is acceptable, but it is very cold.”

  Under the leadership of Charles Mossen, the inventor of the escape breathing device “Mosen Lung”, the Navy diver used a bell-type rescue boat that can be attached to a large boat capable of diving while also being able to escape with the submarine. The cabins are connected. The rescue was carried out four times, and all 33 people in the submarine were safely taken to shore. Just after midnight on May 25, the last survivors also surfaced.

  Survivors under the rubble of Haiti

  After the 7.3-magnitude earthquake in Haiti, the probability of finding survivors under the rubble piles plummeted every day, but survivors could still be found on the fifth, seventh and even eleventh day after the earthquake. The whole world is exclaimed “inconceivable.” However, when Darlene Etienne survived on the fifteenth day after the earthquake, we can only use one word to describe her perseverance: miracle! In the ruins of a house near St. Gerard University, French rescuers carried the 17-year-old survivor out, and she was physically devoid of physical dehydration and a broken leg.
