Four electricians and their foreman were killed in the blast that occured underground on Saturday evening in Uricani, a mining town in Romania. Rescuers nearly shared their fate, as a second explosion happened behind the emergency teams were leaving the mine after the search operation. Fortunately, the shockwave was far enough not to harm them.
The initial explosion was so powerful that it literally shattered the bodies of the five miners who were attempting to repair a transformer at the time of the incident.
