41 people died and 11 were injured after an explosion at a coal mine in northern Turkey’s Bartin province on Friday (10/14).

About 110 people were working in the mine at the time of the explosion — nearly half of them at a depth of more than 300 meters.

Amasra Mayor Recai Cakir said many of those who survived suffered “serious injuries”.

Videos taken at the scene show workers exiting the mine with their bodies smeared with coal black and bleary-eyed.
