MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — One man was injured and trapped by a collapse in an iron ore mine in the Kemerovo Region, a source at the Russian Emergencies Ministry's regional department told Itar-Tass.
The collapse occurred at a depth of 450 metres during blasting work in the mine. It is located in the village of Sheregesh, the Tashtagol district.
The injured miner is recovered and handed over to medical specialists, the source said.
Mine rescuers are continuing to work at the site.
The collapse occurred at 22:49 Moscow time, November 29.
At the moment, 150 people were in the mine. The work has not been halted. People are not taken to the surface, the source added.
It is the second incident in the Kemerovo Region's mines in a week. Last Sunday, November 25, methane exploded in the Gramoteinskaya mine in the town of Belovo, where seven people were injured. They had arm, face and upper respiratory tract burns. The people were hospitalized. A criminal case is opened over the accident.
