Several miners are feared dead after they were trapped underground after the walls of their mines collapsed yesterday evening at around 4 pm.
About six people were feared to be trapped in the accident and up to the time of the post only two people were already rescued by the rescue team and the rescue process is still underway and the number of casualties is yet to be confirmed.
Residents are now crying for the local and national governments to come to the rescue of the miners due to increased rates of mining accidents.
The incident took place in the Copper mines that are managed by Khalaf a company that has been in charge of the copper mines.
According to my opinion, It is very painful and something must be done about it. What do you think about this? Leave your feedback in the comments section.
