Rescue services are carrying out a rescue operation in a flooded mine in Sobótka. Rescuers are looking for three missing men.

As TVN24 reported, a rescue operation is currently underway in the flooded mine in Sobótka. On Sunday, 3 October, at around 14:00, police officers from Wrocław received a report of an accident. Six people were diving in the flooded mine in Sobótka. Three surfaced as planned, while the other three did not.

The way it works is that you first go down 40 m on a platform and then swim 14 m and enter a side corridor. Six people have dived there today, three of whom unfortunately remain underwater. – said for TVN24 Capt. Tomasz Szwajnos, press officer of KM PSP Wrocław.

A special fire brigade water and diving team was sent to the flooded mine in Sobótka A special water and diving team of the fire brigade was sent to the flooded mine. Unfortunately, upon arrival at the site, it turned out that it was impossible for the rescuers to start the operation. All because of zero visibility under water. In this situation, rescuers have to wait and it is only possible to use a remote-controlled robot. Probably the very poor visibility is also one of the reasons for the whole incident.

Both the people who surfaced and the people being searched are experienced divers. Visibility is practically zero and our rescuers cannot enter the water. The only thing we can do at the moment is to use a remote-controlled robot equipped with a video camera. – explains Szwajnos.
