The National Civil Protection Coordination (CNPC) reported that the personnel working to rescue the 10 miners trapped in a well in the community of Las Agujitas in Sabinas, Cohauila, introduced a camera to assess the conditions of the mine.
According to the CNPC, the camera was introduced in well 4. The workers are in a tunnel, between wells 1 and 2, according to an infographic released by the federal authorities.
The head of the agency, Laura Velázquez Alsúa, shared a 32-second video in which the rescuers are shown introducing the camera, which will allow them to have a broader view of the conditions of the mine in order to carry out the rescue.
