The first images of 41 workers waiting to be rescued for 9 days in the tunnel that collapsed during construction in India gave hope. While the race against time continues in rescue efforts, the danger of new collapse is causing concern.
The first images from the inside of 41 workers trapped in the tunnel that collapsed under construction in India for 9 days have been published.
In the state of Uttarakhand, rescue efforts have been continuing for days for 41 workers who were trapped when a part of the tunnel under construction collapsed during road work. Authorities stopped the rescue work after detecting that the drilling machine was damaged due to the ing sound coming from inside the tunnel during the work at the weekend.
While rescue teams continued their work after their new machines arrived in the region, the first images of workers struggling to survive under the collapsed tunnel for days created excitement in the country. Workers were seen standing in a small area and talking to rescue teams.
Workers are supplied with oxygen, medicine and food through a pipe. On the other hand, the fact that some of the workers under the rubble have health problems and the rescue efforts are taking longer cause concern.
Teams are trying to dig a space 60 meters underground with drilling machines that workers can crawl out of, but the work is progressing slowly due to concerns about new collapse in the tunnel.
Officials stated that the workers tried to maintain their health in the dark and narrow wreckage by sleeping, doing yoga and talking frequently, and that their morale was good.
