6 Killed After Coal Mine Explosion In Iran

Tragedy Strikes: Coal Mine Explosion Claims Six Lives in Northern Iran

A devastating explosion in a coal mine in northern Iran has resulted in the tragic loss of six workers, according to reports from state media. The explosion occurred deep within a tunnel, approximately 400 meters (440 yards) below the surface, in the city of Damghan. The official IRNA news agency covered the incident, although the exact cause of the explosion remains unclear.

IRNA reported, “Six miners were trapped underground on Sunday when the coal mine explosion took place in Damghan.”

Despite valiant rescue efforts, the miners could not be saved, and their lifeless bodies were recovered the following Monday.

Heart-wrenching footage shared by IRNA depicted fellow workers at the site laboring tirelessly to retrieve the remains of their colleagues from beneath the rubble.

This tragic incident is not the first at this particular mining site. In May 2021, two miners lost their lives in a collapse at the same location, as reported by local media.

It’s important to note that this disaster brings back painful memories of a coal mine explosion in 2017 at Azad Shahr city in northern Iran, which claimed the lives of 43 miners. The incident sparked widespread outrage directed at Iranian authorities.
