Seven workers trapped after trawl mine collapse in Mexico
A dredge mine located in the municipality of Múzquiz in the state of Coahuila de Zaragoza, located in central northern Mexico, collapsed on Friday and in the incident at least seven workers were reportedly trapped from noon.
According to local media, Francisco Martínez Ávalos, Deputy Secretary for Civil Protection of Coahuila, confirmed the accident and said that a rescue team had been activated in the area.
The Mexican National Guard reported via Twitter the deployment of a security plan in the area adjacent to the mine, with the aim of allowing the rescue of the trapped workers.
