They fought, and God won . . ."

Rescued miner saw God, devil during captivity
By Mariano Castillo, CNN October 13, 2010

(CNN) -- Having spent 69 days trapped inside the San Jose mine in Chile before being rescued, Mario Sepulveda says he is a changed man. "I buried 40 years of my life down there, and I'm going to live a lot longer to be a new person," he said in a video conference, hours after surfacing from half a mile underground.

Sepulveda, the second miner extracted from the mine, has advice for those who take undue risks in their lives.

"I think I have learned a lot of wonderful lessons about taking the good path in life," he said. "For those of you able to call your wives, or your husbands, do so."

During the time he was trapped inside the mine, Sepulveda said he saw both good and evil. "I was with God, and I was with the devil. They fought, and God won," he said. Sepulveda said he grabbed God's hand and never doubted that he would be rescued.
