DONETSK, January 22. /TASS/. A total of 84 miners were trapped in a coal pit near Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, as a shell hit a local electric substation, cutting power to the coal mine, a regional police chief said on Thursday.
The accident occurred at the Severnaya coal mine of Ukraine's Dzerzhinskugol company, Vyacheslav Abroskin wrote on his Facebook page. “84 miners are underground,” the official said.
The Donetsk regional administration said shortly after power was restored and all the miners were brought to the surface. Officials said no one was injured in the accident.
