2 workers trapped in Gaza tunnel collapse
2013-01-12
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two workers were trapped in a Gaza smuggling tunnel on Friday as heavy rain caused several underground passages to collapse, civil defense crews said.Muhammad al-Maydneh, spokesman for civil defense crews in Gaza, told Ma'an that the Palestinian side is communicating with Egypt in order to save the two workers.
"Mahmoud! Can you hear me?"
"Mmmmmmmmph!"
"What he say?"
"He said, "Mmmmmmmmph!"

An Egyptian security official told Ma'an on Thursday that many of the tunnels under Gaza's border with Egypt are flooded or collapsed, after 3 days of heavy rainfall.
Lousy Zionist rain!
Earlier Friday, three workers trapped in the flooded tunnels were rescued by civil defense crews, al-Maydneh said.
Could they see their shadows when they got out?
Emergency services in the Gaza Strip are working around the clock to cope with the stormy weather.
Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather...

#5  I've heard that the tunnels are built for use by smugglers, who pay a fee to the builders.

If that's the case, then the workers are victims of unsafe working conditions brought on by uncaring owners interested only in profit.

I sense an... opportunity... for the SEIU to broaden their horizons.

#4  Two workers were trapped in a Gaza smuggling tunnel…

Workers huh? Most people would just call them smugglers. Then again, if they find em dead they will become martyrs so it makes perfect sense. (In a Paleo sort of way.)

#2  Egyptian cop: "so how did he die?"
Gazook tunnel survivor: " he said 'help me, help me, I'm drowning."
Egyptian cop: " so then what?"
Gazook tunnel survivor: " So I pushed his head under."
