Excursions with diggers have been suspended in Moscow
Several sites that previously offered tours of the Neglinnaya Underground River in Moscow have temporarily stopped booking coming dates or removed the pages associated with these tours after a tragic incident when several people died in a sewer.

Due to the sudden rise in the water level, the sewer where they were was flooded. According to the latest data, rescuers found the bodies of three victims, including a minor. A criminal case was initiated on this occasion.
