Most of miners died as result of carbon monoxide poisoning in Turkey

Baku, Azerbaijan, May 14

By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Most of the miners killed, died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, Turkish TRT Haber channel reported on May 14.

Currently, the rescuers are injecting oxygen into the shaft as miners have only 50 minutes of air, according to the TV channel.

The death toll increased to 201 people, more than 500 people remain under the rubble, according to the recent data, Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources said.

The minister stressed that there were 787 people at work during the mining accident and 363 miners have been rescued.

It is difficult to determine the exact number of dead as the explosion occurred during a shift change. The accident occurred at the mine in the Soma settlement of Manisa province, located 250 kilometers south of Istanbul. The mine is located at a depth of about two kilometers.

A short circuit caused the fire and explosion that led to the mine collapse, according to preliminary data.

In the first four months of 2014, some 1,235 people were killed as a result of work accidents, 103 of them were female, according to the Turkish Statistics Institute.
