Indian workers trapped in a collapsed road tunnel for 10 days were seen alive on camera for the first time on Tuesday as workers attempted to create new passageways to free them.

One of the proposed routes is nearly half a kilometer long. Workers could be seen peering at the endoscopic camera sent by rescuers down the thin pipe through which air, food and water are being sent.

Excavators have been removing tonnes of earth, concrete and rubble from the under-construction tunnel in Uttarakhand since November 12, after the tunnel collapsed.
