Watch: 41 men freed from collapsed tunnel

The Indian construction workers had been trapped for weeks amid an intense rescue operation.

RT’s Runjhun Sharma reports from northern India, where a dramatic relief operation ended on Tuesday with the rescue of all 41 construction workers trapped in a collapsed highway tunnel.

A section of the Silkyara-Barkot tunnel, which had been under construction in the country’s mountainous Uttarakhand state, caved in on November 12.

The authorities had used a small pipe, which remained intact after the disaster, to deliver food, water and medical supplies to the trapped men amid weeks of grueling drilling operations.
