Rescuers find one more dead miner trapped under ground at Raspadkaya

KEMEROVO, November 6 (Itar-Tass) — Rescuers have found the body of one more worker trapped under the ground at the Raspadkaya mine in the Kemerovo region after an accident in May of this year.

Currently, 16 miners are still missing.

After the body has been lifted to the surface, it will be identified.

Kemerovo region Governor Aman Tuleyev told Itar-Tass on Saturday, November 6, “Work is underway in very difficult conditions at a depth of 300-400 metres. Water continues to be pumped out. Rescuers are removing the rock that crashed because of the flooding.”

“Nevertheless, the search will continue until the bodies of all missing miners are found,” he said.
