China: Two trapped workers found dead in waterlogged tunnel in Zhuhai

Two among the 14 construction workers trapped in a waterlogged tunnel in Zhuhai, South China’s Guangdong Province have been found dead, four days after the incident occurred, state media reported quoting authorities on Monday. Other 12 workers still could not be contacted as the rescue team is still 561.5 meters away from the trapped people, said a Zhuhai government official on Sunday. Professional diving teams have been sent, but no trapped workers have been found yet, said Zhang Yisheng, vice mayor of Zhuhai, at a press conference on Sunday. To push forward the rescue process as fast as possible, Zhang said the rescue team has been draining the water from the tunnel while filling and sealing the leakage points on the tunnel roof.

Since the incident occurred at 3:30 am on Thursday, 14 construction workers have been trapped in the tunnel, which is 1,160 meters away from its opening, for more than 90 hours.
