41 workers trapped for more than 2 weeks in tunnel collapse in India freed as broadcast by NDTV and Sky News.

The men had been stuck inside the tunnel in Uttarkhand for more than two weeks, with rescuers digging for more than 400 hours to reach them.

Each worker was pulled individually through a narrow passage on a wheeled stretcher.

The team was trapped on November 12 when a landslide caused a section of the 4.5 km (2.8 mi) tunnel they were building to collapse about 200 meters (650 ft) from the entrance.

They managed to survive on food and oxygen supplied through a pipeline.

Rescuers reached the 41 workers trapped in India’s under-construction road tunnel early, clearing the last hurdle.
