Franklin Erasmo Lobos Ram?rez (born June 2, 1957 in Copiap?) is a retired Chilean footballer. Lobos debuted in 1980 for Regional Atacama, and retired in 1995, playing for the same club he started his career with. He was nicknamed El Mortero M?gico (The Magic Mortar). He eventually became a miner, and was one of the miners trapped underground for two months in the 2010 Copiap? mining accident. On October 13, 2010, Lobos was the 27th of 33 miners to be rescued.

Lobos represented Chile in the CONMEBOL Men Pre-Olympic Tournament, a qualifying tournament for the 1984 Olympic Games.
After his sporting career ended Lobos became a taxi-driver and, in 2005, a miner. He worked as a truck driver in the Copiap? mine, where in August 2010, he was one of the 33 miners trapped in the 2010 Copiap? mining accident. He was the 27th miner to be rescued on October 13 and thus holds the record for the seventh longest time ever being trapped underground. The Guinness World Records was asked by the rescue team for all the miners, including Lobos, to be honored with the record.
He has two daughters.
Marvellous news about the Chilean miners. After weeks of anguish, stress and painstaking toil in dank and cramped conditions, we managed to find a sticker card of Franklin Lobos, the former footballer who was the 27th of the 33 miners to be lifted to the surface earlier this week. Lobos, who spent nine seasons in the Chilean first division with four different clubs, scored from over 100 free-kicks during his playing career and was nicknamed the "Magic Mortar". After retiring he worked for a taxi firm then became a truck driver at the mine. One of his former clubs, Cobresal, may now rename their stadium after him.

The ordeal stirred memories of a 2010 Chilean mine collapse in which 33 men were trapped underground for 69 days. All those miners were rescued, pulled one by one from hundreds of meters beneath the Earth's surface with a specially designed capsule.
