ADVERTISEMENTRescuers have also started to create a vertical channel with a newly replaced drilling machine, officials said. The work being done now is designed to create a passageway for evacuating the trapped workers. They could also face similar risks or problems they encountered earlier that damaged the first drilling machine attempting to cut through rocks. Most of the trapped workers are migrant laborers from across the country. Authorities have supplied the trapped workers with hot meals through a 6-inch (15-centimeter) pipe after days of surviving only on dry food sent through a narrower pipe.
