Last week, reports broke that a massive flood had occurred inside a tunnel construction project in southern China.
Working inside the tunnel at the time of the flood were more than a dozen workers.
Early Thursday, reports broke that the bodies of all 14 workers had been recovered, all of them dead.
The Shijingshan tunnel is a new expressway construction project that was taking place beneath a reservoir in Zhuhai.
This is a Guangdong province city near Hong Kong and Macao.
Chinese officials have kept details regarding the disaster close to the vest, so we really do not know what caused the flooding in the tunnel project.
However, we do know the rescue efforts involved remote-controlled submarines, divers, and other high-tech underwater equipment.
The one detail that has surfaced regarding the tragedy is that pieces of the tunnel were seen coming off one of the walls during work.
Water started to come through and the workers were ordered to evacuate, but 14 were unable to get out.
This is now the second loss of life associated with this project, with two workers reportedly dying in March in a different area of the tunnel.
