Passengers were stranded for 5 hours below sea level in the English Channel

CHundreds of passengers were stranded on Tuesday in the Eurotunnel, the route connecting the United Kingdom and France. It took them all about six hours to reach their destination, the British town of Folkestone.

The route is about 50 km long and takes about 35 minutes to complete. According to British news agency PA, the train journey, which started in the French city of Calais, lasted about 10 minutes before being interrupted. “We made the 3:50pm journey and ten minutes later the lights went out and the train stopped. We were told they had to investigate a problem with the wheels.”One of the passengers told the agency, as cited by the Guardian. “It took about 1h30 to see what was going on and apparently they didn’t find anything”Continuation Michael Harrison.

Pictures on social media show people with suitcases and even animals. All passengers had to stay below sea level for more than five hours. At its lowest point, the Channel Tunnel is 75 meters below sea level.

“After the wait we left via an alternate emergency tunnel. We walked about ten minutes to another train. That train also stopped, probably due to lack of traction.”The same traveler explained.
