Five Killed, Many Trapped In India Mine Collapse

At least five people have been killed, and many more are reportedly trapped, following the collapse of mine waste, at a mine in India.

At least five Indian miners were killed and nearly two dozen trapped when mine waste collapsed at a mine run by state-owned Coal India Limited, police said on Friday.

Several vehicles working at the mine were also trapped in the accident in Jharkhand state on Thursday evening at the Lalmatia mines owned by Eastern Coalfields Limited (ECL), a subsidiary of the world’s largest miner.

“Five dead bodies have been recovered so far and 23 are missing,” state police spokesman R.K. Mullick told Reuters.
