Nova abordagem para chegar aos trabalhadores retidos

By Ninian Carter

November 21, 2023 - As equipas que tentam alcançar os 41 trabalhadores da construção retidos num túnel de auto-estrada na região indiana dos Himalaias conseguiram fazer-lhes chegar comida quente e medicamentos.

A video camera has been used to record footage of 41 workers trapped in an under-construction tunnel in India for the first time since a cave-in occurred on November 12.

A new 15cm wide pipe has been drilled into the 60 metre deep mound of rubble blocking the tunnel, allowing rescuers to send the workers their first hot meal in days.

Officials say the new pipe will also help supply the workers with more oxygen, food and other essentials like medicine and mobile phones.
