Gloria mine search for missing bodies halted

Apparently there are big rocks falling and the area is also flooded with water

The attempts to find remaining bodies at the Gloria Mine have been temporarily halted.

It is to be remembered that last week Friday, February 22, after the recovery of the 13 bodies, the Mine Search and Rescue Teams had to halt their search due to some challenges that prevailed and resumed again on Monday, February 25.

On Wednesday, February 27 again, it was decided that the search mission be temporarily suspended due to the volatility of the areas being searched.

Apparently there are big rocks falling and the area is also flooded with water.

The collective also extended a call to those who were in the mine prior to the tragedy to come forth and share some light as where these bodies might be.
