There’s a gas mask, but there’s no time

according to the New York Times on the 14th, Sami kletch, a miner who has worked in soma coal mine for nine years, said: “even with a gas mask, it’s hard to survive. When the power distribution device explodes under the mine, the power will be cut off, and the ventilation equipment will stop working when the power is cut off. The air circulation is also poor, and the survival rate will be reduced. “

although the miners have been trained to use gas masks in emergencies, it is only assumed that they can get fresh air in 45 minutes, kletch said. “We’ve been trained to use a gas mask when you can get fresh air in 45 minutes, but you can’t climb 1.5 kilometers in 45 minutes,” kretch said
