Dehradun: A massive drill is being used to free dozens of workers who have been stuck in a tunnel in Uttarakhand for about 150 hours. A startling “cracking sound” and a hitch in the drilling machine forced the rescue efforts to end last evening.
According to officials, work will shortly resume at the accident scene after a second heavy drill was brought in.
A section of the tunnel crashed in on Sunday morning, trapping the forty workers. According to officials, food and water are being provided to all workers via steel pipes that have been drilled into the aperture, and everyone is safe.
Upon arriving at the accident scene, the families of the trapped workers are beginning to lose faith. One of the workers’ brothers stated that the workers must be rescued as soon as possible to prevent their health from getting worse.Physicians have also emphasized that the confined workers must have full rehabilitation, as they worry extended confinement may require mental and physical healing.
Forty construction workers were trapped under the debris on November 12 after a section of the Silkyara Tunnel, which was under construction, collapsed. As rescuers attempt to make an opening to shove through pipes so the men may crawl to safety, falling debris from the drilling process hampered their efforts to reach them
On Friday night, there was a “large-scale cracking sound” that caused the drilling to stop.
