Miners were rescued after almost two days in Jergalan. The sister of the miner Akbermet Dorgoeva informed 24.kg news agency. Information was also confirmed in the office of government’s permanent representative in the region.

«Rescuers reached the miners and brought them to the surface, they are safe and sound. They spent almost two days under the rubble and survived miraculously," the woman said.

A coal mine where Jergalan-Dorgokomur LLC operates collapsed on April 22 at about 5.35 pm. The reason for the accident is the failure to observe the safety rules.
