Rat miners were seen walking out of the Sulkiara tunnel in Uttarkashi with their drillers. Additionally, NDRF and SDRF teams were seen entering the crash site with their equipment to rescue 41 workers trapped there. 12 Rat-hole miners were working on horizontal excavation at the collapse site. Rat hole mining is an ancient and dangerous method of coal extraction in India.

Earlier, Chris Cooper, who led the Larsen & Toberco team, predicted that workers’ wait would soon be over. He had told reporters that workers can come out till 5 pm. He also said that vertical drilling, which was being done as an alternative to reach the workers, has now been stopped. During horizontal drilling in the tunnel with a heavy and powerful 25-tonne American auger machine, several parts of the machine got stuck in debris and the work was disrupted on Friday. The strategy of hand drilling and pipe laying was then adopted in the tunnel.
