MADRID (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - El accidente ocurrido ayer ha dejado hasta ahora seis muertos y cinco afectados de distinta intensidad debido a la intoxicaci贸n por el escape repentino de gas gris煤.

El Obispo de Le贸n, Mons. Juli谩n L贸pez Mart铆n, y el Vicario General, P. Jes煤s Fern谩ndez Gonz谩lez, visitaron el lugar de la tragedia minera poco despu茅s de que tuviera lugar el accidente en las cercan铆as de Llombera de Gord贸n para acompa艅ar en el dolor a las familias de las v铆ctimas.

En ese sentido, el Prelado dijo que eleva a Dios misericordioso oraciones por el eterno descanso de los fallecidos y pide para sus familiares y amigos fortaleza humana y esperanza cristiana. A la vez expresa su deseo de que la recuperaci贸n de los heridos sea r谩pida y completa.

El accidente parece que tuvo lugar a las 14 horas del pasado 28 de octubre, cuando se encontraban en el interior de la mina 150 trabajadores.

La Junta de Castilla y Le贸n ha decretado tres d铆as de luto por el accidente minero. La empresa ha manifestado su condolencia en un comunicado, mientras los sindicatos han convocado para este martes 29 de octubre un paro general en toda la miner铆a del pa铆s en se艅al de duelo.

Se ha abierto una investigaci贸n para conocer las causas del accidente, por eso una juez del Juzgado de Guardia, acompa艅ada por dos forenses, se ha trasladado al Pozo Emilio del Valle para identificar a los seis mineros muertos en el accidente y actualmente el Instituto de Medicina Legal de Le贸n est谩 practicando las autopsias de los fallecidos.
