Workers Trapped in Road Tunnel in India

Forty-one workers were trapped in a collapsed road tunnel in northern India and have been there for 10 days so far. The number of trapped workers was revised up from 40 to 41, according to Anshu Manish, a director at the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited, an agencies overseeing the rescue.

A new drilling machine arrived on site to replace a damaged one to help with the extrication. Reports say the exceptionally hard rock formation in the area coupled with the clearing of debris damaged the original machine and paused rescue efforts after several days.
