Three Killed, 11 Feared Trapped in Tunnel Collapse in India

  • VOA News

Rescuers in India have recovered bodies of three workers from a tunnel that collapsed Wednesday in a landslide triggered by heavy rains.

Officials in Dolkamb village north of Bombay say the rescuers are now searching for at least 11 others believed trapped inside the tunnel which was being built to carry water to a power plant.

District administrator Nandkumar Jantre said mud, boulders and parts of trees crashed onto the tunnel, flooding it and trapping the workers inside.

He said navy divers are helping to search for the workers, but bad weather is hampering their efforts.
