The head of the National Civil Protection Coordination (CNPC) of Mexico, Laura Velázquez, reported this Friday that the conditions already exist for the rescue team to enter the collapsed mine in Sabinas (Coahuila), where 10 workers have been trapped since last August 3.
After the rescue operations were suspended due to the abundant levels of water and mud, Velázquez reported on Friday morning that 97% of the liquid had been extracted, so they already had “all the conditions to download today“.
“All morning they removed material to enter the search and rescue at this time,” explained the head of the CNPC during a live link in the morning conference of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
