First video emerges of workers trapped in collapsed Indian tunnel

By: Kimberly Rodrigues

Indian rescuers on Tuesday (21), publicly released the first video footage featuring the workers confined within the Silkyara tunnel for the past ten days.

The visuals were captured using an endoscopic camera sent in through the alternative 6-inch food pipeline.

In the video, the workers, wearing yellow and white helmets, are seen receiving food items sent to them through the pipeline and talking to each other.

This comes as a big relief to the families of these workers.

National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL) Director Anshu Manish Khalkho had earlier said that cameras would be inserted through the pipeline to see how the workers were doing.

The camera was sent in after it came from Delhi late on Monday evening.
