Steve Jobs gives iPods to rescued Chilean miners

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Thu October 14, 2010

Survivors reap bounties from cave-in ordeal

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is giving iPods to each of the 33 miners rescued from a cave-in in northern Chile, according to Reuters. No other details are available on the gifts, though the players are likely to be fourth-generation Touches for the sake of promotional value. The miners were trapped underground for 68 days, 17 of which went without contact from the surface.

Beyond iPods, the group has been bombarded with gifts. These include $10,000 payouts, a possible tour of the Greek islands, and invitations to watch Real Madrid and Manchester United play soccer. Only one of the miners is believed to be ill, infected with pneumonia being treated with antibiotics.
