In the final phase of rescue at Uttarakhand tunnel, each worker will be placed on a wheeled stretcher and carefully pulled outside by rescue teams using ropes.

The rescue operation in Uttarakhand's Silkyara tunnel, which experienced a partial collapse, reached the final stage on Tuesday, with the evacuation of 41 trapped workers being carried out.

Villagers and locals gather to look at the efforts by the operatives to rescue the 41 men trapped inside the collapsed under construction Silkyara tunnel in the Uttarkashi district of India's Uttarakhand state on November 28, 2023.

Efforts initially involved drilling through a 60-metre stretch of collapsed tunnel debris, using techniques like horizontal drilling with an auger machine. However, this process encountered difficulties on Thursday, leading to a pause. Subsequently, the rescue team initiated vertical drilling from the tunnel's top. Simultaneously, authorities transitioned to manual drilling using rat-hole mining technique to clear the last 10 metres of debris.

The workers trapped in the tunnel have been waiting for rescue for the past 16 days.

Post-evacuation procedure

In the final phase of the rescue, each worker will be placed on a wheeled stretcher and carefully pulled outside by rescue teams using ropes. This process is estimated to take around two to three hours, considering the practiced procedure.

A makeshift medical facility has been set up inside the tunnel to conduct health assessments for the rescued workers. After their evacuation, the health department has prepared eight beds for immediate care, and a team of doctors and specialists is on standby in case of any complications.

Ambulances are positioned at the tunnel's entrance, ready to transport the rescued workers as they emerge from the steel chute, ferrying them to a nearby community health center.

A dedicated ward with 41 oxygen-supported beds had been arranged earlier at the Chinyalisaur community health center, roughly 30 kilometres away from Silkyara, specifically catering to the needs of the rescued workers.

Medical personnel are on standby, ready to provide assistance, and arrangements have been made to airlift workers to more advanced hospitals if necessary.
