HÒA BÌNH — Rescuers on Saturday discovered the body of one victim of a gold mine collapse in Lộng Village, Thanh Nông Commune, Lạc Thủy District, the northern province of Hòa Bình.

Senior lieutenant-colonel Phạm Tuấn Linh, an official from the Hòa Bình Police, said that after seven days of digging thousands of cubic metres of soil to search for the two missing men, the rescuing forces found one.

The deceased is Bùi Văn Thú, 28, from Thanh Nông Commune.

Rescuers are continuing to search for the remaining victim.

At about 2am on November 4, the mouth of Cột Cờ cave in Lộng Village collapsed and trapped two miners inside.

The incident occurred as a dam above the cave mouth broke while the two workers were operating an excavator inside the cave. Thousands of cubic metres of soil and water flowed into the cave, sweeping the two workers, one automobile and an excavator deep inside the cave. — VNS
