A burst water pipe is thought to have caused a shaft to collapse

I wonder how much water poured in to the mine before they isolated the burst pipe.

Another question in my mind is when the pipe burst did it take out the power supply to the pumps that keep water out of the mine.

The South Africans are world class mining experts.

They couldn’t be in better hands.

Prayers for their safety.
