Nine days after the flooding of the coal pits at the El Pinabete mine in Sabinas, Coahuila, the rescue operation focuses on the removal of rubble and other obstacles, the shoring of the softened areas and the extraction of water.
Once these tasks are completed and safety conditions are in place, the rescuers will enter to search for the trapped miners since August 3.
One of the main problems that the elements of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) have encountered is the large number of poles (pieces of wood) that obstruct the passage to the four underground galleries of the damaged mine.
This morning, relatives of the miners complained again about lack of information and insist that the work be accelerated to start the rescue.
Unofficial sources stated that at any time this Friday the first rescuers could enter.
