In Uttarakhand, India, 41 workers trapped inside a tunnel for 17 days were finally saved. The rescue operation was tough because their drilling machine broke, so they had to finish the last part by hand.

Local official Dhami said the workers were all okay. Doctors checked them, and they were all fine. The workers were strong and came out of the tunnel themselves, even though there were stretchers for them.

Each worker will get 100,000 rupees (around $1,200) for what they went through. They will also get some time off to relax with their families.

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, talked about how brave the workers were and thanked everyone who helped in the rescue on social media.
