According to Adom FM, who visited the site and saw the uncoordinated rescue efforts, only two of the trapped miners had been rescued alive, albeit with injuries, while the lifeless bodies of the other seven had been laid out in the open, covered only with bushes.

The miners prevented the team of journalists from taking photographs of the incident and chased them away.
