Uttarkashi tunnel rescue | 'Lived like brothers': rescued workers tell PM how they survived

The 41 men trapped in the Silkyara tunnel in Uttarakhand were rescued late Tuesday. This marked the end of the 17-day-long rescue mission. As the workers were rescued, they had a telephonic conversation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in which the workers told the PM how they survived inside the tunnel.

One of the workers while speaking with PM Modi said, “Including today, we were stuck in the tunnel for a total of 18 days but not even one day we felt that we were having any sort of weakness or anxiety. Nothing like that happened because we were 41 people in total and everyone was from different states of the country but we all lived like brothers.”

He further said, “We made sure to stick together and we didn’t face any problem because of that. As the food used to come, we all used to sit together and have the meal. “

The worker also said, “Once we were done with our dinner, we used to take a walk inside the tunnel in the 2.5 km area where we were trapped.”

“In the morning, we used to do Yoga and take a morning walk inside the tunnel.”

The workers further thanked the Uttarakhand government for their efforts and said that they are really grateful.
