Rescuers on Tuesday successfully drilled through debris to reach 41 workers trapped for 17 days in a collapsed tunnel in the Indian Himalayas and were set to pull them out to safety, an official told Reuters.

The men were stuck in the 4.5-km (3-mile) tunnel in the mountainous state of Uttarakhand since it caved in early on Nov. 12.
