The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, pointed out that this Saturday will be a decisive day to advance in the rescue of the miners trapped in Sabinas, Coahuila, since it will be known if there is a possibility that the divers enter without risk.

López Obrador pointed out on his social networks that “work continues day and night to rescue the miners of Sabinas, Coahuila”, but “the main problem is the flooding, although the pumping equipment is sufficient and of the highest capacity”.

“Today is a decisive day because, according to the technicians, it will be known if there is a possibility that the divers will enter without risk,” said the Mexican president.

This Saturday, more than two and a half days after the accident in the coal pit located in Sabinas, and where at least 10 mining workers remain trapped, the hope of locating them and rescuing them alive remains latent among their relatives.

After a third day characterized by great activity in the area where the incident took place, which contrasted with the silence of the authorities towards the relatives of the miners who are located outside the placethey promised to deliver the information they have been demanding from the beginning, so a light of hope remains.

The Coahuila government issued a statement yesterday stating that some water pumps were replaced, raising pumping capacity by 60 percent. The Mimosa company reported the successful completion of a hole, which adds up to two drillings and it is expected to introduce more pumps.
