52 dead in Siberian coal mining accident - reports - RTÉ

The death toll from an accident in a Siberian coal mine today has risen to 52, Russia's TASS news agency quoted a source as saying.

Dozens of people were trapped underground when the mine filled with gas, and the victims included at least three rescuers sent down to save them.

This evening, rescuers were forced to call off a search for the missing due to the threat of an explosion at the Listvyazhnaya mine.

The mine, near the town of Belovo in the Kemerovo mining region, filled with smoke in the early hours of this morning with 285 people inside.

Most were able to evacuate, but 11 people died and another 35 were missing, said local governor Sergei Tsivilev.

  1. A mining accident in Siberia has killed 52 people, including six rescue workers, Russian media have reported citing preliminary data from emergency services, with all the missing persons presumed dead.

    Over 260 miners have been rescued from the facility after reports of an explosion, with 40 of them ending up hospitalized. Some 11 miners were confirmed dead shortly after the accident unfolded, while 35 mere were considered missing. At least three out of six emergency workers have also perished during rescue efforts.

    Late on Thursday, RIA Novosti reported that all the missing persons were presumed dead, citing sources in the emergency services. The assessment, however, has not yet been officially confirmed by Russia's EMERCOM, with its press service telling RT that the fate of 35 miners and three rescuers remains unknown.

    The deadly accident at the Listvyazhskaya mine located in Russia’s Siberian region of Kuzbass unfolded early on Thursday. The mine was filled with thick smoke after reports of an explosion of one of its ventilation shafts.

    “Most likely, it was explosion of methane, triggered by a spark somewhere, that lead to the blast and a shockwave. It injured people who were unable to get out,” Russia’s deputy prosecutor general, Dmitri Demeshin has said.

    A criminal probe into the accident has already been launched, with the mine’s director, his first deputy, and also the manager of the site detained, Russia’s investigative committee said.
