India: 41 workers rescued after 19 days trapped in a collapsed tunnel

For more than two weeks, rescuers in India have been drilling and digging through debris, trying to reach a group of construction workers who’ve been trapped since the tunnel they were building collapsed.

Now the country is celebrating after all 41 men were pulled out through a narrow pipe fed through the rubble. They emerged to cheers in Uttarkashi in the Himalayas, and are said to be in good health despite their long ordeal.
