November 7th, 1963 – Miracle of Lengede


November 7th, 1963: In Lengede a miraculous rescue effort of eleven buried miners takes place! On October 24th, 1963, 50 miners are surprised by a water leak in several tunnels deep underground, and become trapped. 29 miners died, three were located and rescued already on November 2nd thanks to their knocking sounds. Then the search was initially discontinued, but later resumed. It was assumed that there could still be survivors down there. The rescue drilling had many technical issues. By chance they ended up in the small cave where the survivors were staying in depth of 58 meters, and had made themselves heard by knocking. The Miracle of Lengede had occurred.
