The miners were trying to get water out of the shaft so they could reach gold deposits, but the pump malfunctioned and emitted smoke.

The accident occurred on Saturday afternoon in Haylanberry, an area outside Bonanza, where 29 miners were trapped while working in a closed mine three weeks ago.

A collapse at the El Comal mine on Aug. 28 trapped the miners.

Twenty miners were rescued, two managed to get out of the mine on their own and seven others died when rescue operations had to be suspended due to the unstable soil in the area.
