One of the 33 Chilean miners rescued last month, Edison Peña, will visit the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday.

It will mark the first in-studio interview for any of the miners since their rescue.

Peña survived the 69-day ordeal by running three to six miles each day in the mine and has now accepted an invitation from the New York Road Runners organization to participate in the New York City Marathon on Sunday.

Amazing.

    Great news but how did he run that far in that mine? And wasn't it dark? What about oxygen levels? So many questions. I can't wait to hear what he has to say. Perez - please post the interview since I'll be on a plane during the airing. Thx.

    You go boy! And there is at least one of us here who is glad you can raise your hand and waive. Take care of your kids. If you don't have kids, then take care of your mom. I am very happy you are alive to read this.

    @boonas the mine was TOO big, that's why a giant rock fell from the ceiling… and they had light from a truck that was caught too

    Sorry. Thanks to relentless media coverage of the mine disaster, I'm sort of hating on any related story. It's way cool the were rescued-since it seems that any miiner trapped in this country usually dies-but they beat this horse to death.

    "It will mark the first in-studio interview for any of the miners since their rescue." That's not true, a lot of them have been in tv shows, doing interviews and stuff.
