Los rescatistas se apresuran para salvar a 40 trabajadores atrapados en un túnel en India

November 14, 2023 - Rescatistas se apresuran para salvar a 40 trabajadores atrapados dentro de un túnel colapsado en el estado de Uttarakhand en el norte de India desde la mañana del domingo.

The workers, who were building the tunnel, were trapped when part of it caved in due to a landslide.

Officials have been able to establish contact with the men and have been providing them with food, water and oxygen while they try to get them out.

They say they expect to rescue the workers by Tuesday night or Wednesday.

On Tuesday morning, the state government said rescue teams were "preparing to drill and insert a metal pipe of 900mm diameter in the part of the tunnel blocked by debris" to reach the workers.

Officials hope the men will be able to squeeze through the narrow pipe to safety, the BBC said.
