HONDURAS-TRAPPED MINERS
Honduras enters third day of search for 8 trapped miners; 3 others known alive

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 12:04 PM EDT
MEXICO CITY


Emergency personnel and miners are supplying water and food to three trapped miners and are looking for eight others who disappeared when a tunnel collapsed at a small, wildcat gold mine in southern Honduras.

The head of the local fire department says rescue workers have contacted three of the trapped miners by shouting, and have gotten responses.

Marco Tulio Artica said Friday that rescuers have passed food and water to the three men through small gaps drilled through the rock slide.

He said the work is slow and hard. Workers have to use picks, shovels, small pneumatic drills instead of heavy machinery because of the risk of further collapses.

More than 100 police, firefighters, rescue workers and miners are working during the third day of rescue efforts following Wednesday's cave-in.
