Three miners are unaccounted for after the Lily Mine in Mpumalanga’s Nkomazi area collapsed on Friday morning.

Jacques Ainslie, a paramedic from Hi-Tech Ambulance Services, who is currently on the scene, said that they received a call at about 08:30 regarding the collapsed mine.

“One of the shafts collapsed and trapped about 52 mineworkers. At this stage 70% of the workers or 30 have been rescued. No one sustained serious injuries and they could all walk out of the shaft. They have been transported to local hospitals for treatment,” said Ainslie.
