Following the sad tragedy in which eight people were on Thursday, December 2, trapped after a gold mine collapsed at Abimbo, Siaya County, one of the survivors narrated the last moments he shared with one of his colleagues.
According to one of the survivors Livingston Odhiambo, 35, who was trapped for 35 hours, had already resigned to whatever fate held for him and knew death was around the corner with each passing time.
Odhiambo emotionally narrated their last moment with other workers before they heard crashing sounds above them leading to the unexpected.
"We were preparing to finish our shift before another group entered when the incident happened,” he said.
A few meters from where he struggled to stay alive while hoping for a miracle, one of his colleagues was already dead and partially buried by the rubble.
" I could only see his legs. I tried to pull him to where I was but I was unable to rescue him,” he said.
