Aketch expressed fears that the remaining victim might starve to death, adding that rescuers were communicating with him through pipes that had been pushed into a hole where he is trapped.

In the collapsed area, the machine had stopped extracting soil, making room for several miners to try to rescue their trapped colleagues in an effort to save their lives.
