Around 35 people were trapped underground following a coal mine explosion on Friday in the eastern German town of Teutschenthal, according to German Press Agency (DPA).

All-around 35 individuals at this time had been some 700 meters (2,300 toes) underground proper after the explosion, in protected spots and geared up with oxygen, the goal out mining authority in Saxony-Anhalt defined. About 100 people work at the facility.

Several hours after the explosion, police announced that all the miners had been recovered and gave the all clear.

The local broadcaster MDR reported that a rescue operation had begun.

She brought up again Trump's attacks on Gold Star families "who have given the ultimate sacrifice and you put them through pain". Trump Jr . responded by claiming the whistleblower's name had already been mentioned by multiple media outlets.

The mining authority said one of the injured was in a serious condition, the other only lightly injured, and that there was a possibility that they could be brought to the surface through a shaft that was intact. It evidently was triggered by an explosive mixture of gases. Mineral waste is now saved there. Previously, the mine had been used for potash salt extraction for around 80 years.

Since the beginning of 2008, the Teutschenthal mine has been a subsidiary of the Geiger Group.

The workers were able to escape to a so-called safety room, where they were supplied with oxygen, said a spokesman for the State Mining Office in Halle on Friday.
