Saudi: Two Pakistanis found themselves trapped inside a water spring in the region of Yunbu Al Nakhl in Saudi Arabia.
The two labourers were conducting routine maintenance work when mounds of soil surrounding the spring collapsed, trapping them four metres underground, for hours.
It took the Medina civil defence two hours to remove the soil, reach the two Pakistani expatriates and pull them out safely.
Medina Civil Defence media spokesman Brigadier Khalid Mubarak Al Jahni said that the two workers are in “good health”. An inquiry is underway.
