Three miners die at illegal operation in Colombia

According to the Office of Risk Management, the miners – whose ages ranged from 18 to 37 years old – inhaled toxic gases and perished. The survivors were taken to the hospital and have already been released. No one else was trapped under the rubble. 

Local authorities also reported that a few days back, 38 people were caught illegally extracting gold at the same mine but were not prosecuted, so they returned over the weekend.
