Diane Sawyer will anchor A Special Edition of 20/20: Miracle at the Mine tonight at 10:00 on Channel 7.

The hour special will include the most up-to-date reporting from Bill Weir in Chile, as the Chilean miners ascend, one-by-one, to freedom from the underground chamber where they've been entombed for 10 long weeks.

John Quiñones will report on the 69 day ordeal, which is the longest time ever for a successful rescue; Jeffrey Kofman, who was one of the first American news correspondents on the scene in August, will report on how Chile was able to engineer the inconceivable rescue; and Dr. Richard Besser will provide insights into the immediate and future health and psychological concerns facing the 33 miners.

Coverage continues on Eyewitness News at 11:00 p.m. with Bill Ritter and Liz Cho, followed by a special edition of Nightline devoted to the Chilean mine recovery efforts with anchor Bill Weir reporting live from the scene in San Jose, Chile.
