More than 20 Miners Trapped in Ethiopia Cave for 3 Days

Rescue efforts are underway in a remote community in northern Ethiopia, where a cave collapse trapped over 20 artisanal miners.

According to sources, the tragedy occurred three days ago in the Delanta district, where miners were looking for opal gemstones.

The precise number of people trapped is unknown, and the rugged terrain has hampered rescue attempts, according to local officials in a BBC report.

Hundreds of residents are attempting to dig openings for the miners, as the village’s terrain makes machine support difficult.

Rescue efforts have so far been unsuccessful, but authorities are still hopeful of finding survivors.

Officials reported that in a prior incident, a miner was discovered alive after being buried inside the cave for seven days.
