It's the happy ending to a saga that kept all of India in suspense for 17 days. 41 workers who were trapped in a tunnel after a landslide were finally freed on Tuesday, November 28.

Applause and the relief of an entire country. After more than two weeks of anguish, 41 workers india finally go out into the open air, Tuesday November 28. Outside, to welcome them, several hundred people, rescuers, officials and journalists. A happy ending for a saga which mobilized the effort of the entire nation. Images that will remain engraved in memories, emaciated but smiling, the 41 workers are adorned with garlands and flowers. 

A hose wide enough for a man to get out

Officials are also relieved because this major project desired by the Prime Minister almost became a national catastrophe. The objective of this tunnel in northern India: to connect four major Hindu sites. But on November 12, part of the structure collapsed, trapping these 41 workers. Oxygen, food, water and electricity are transported through a small conduit. For two weeks, teams of three workers take turns, progressing through a tunnel barely wide enough for a man. The Prime Minister praised the courage and patience of these men, sources of inspiration for the world.
