A miracle rescue from a flooded coal mine in China

This is a report about one of the notoriously often coal mine disasters in China and about the rescue works. It´s long but really interesting.

A total of 115 workers had been miraculously retrieved from the flooded Wangjialing Coal Mine in north China's Shanxi Province by the afternoon of April 5, after being trapped underground for more than a week.

"It is a miracle in the history of Chinese mining rescues," said Luo Lin, Director of the State Administration of Work Safety, who stood waiting at the pit entrance. "The trapped miners displayed an unwavering determination to survive for eight days and eight nights."

"Scientific methods and technology used in the rescue have ensured that the miners were rescued alive," said Zhang Baoshun, Secretary of the Shanxi Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
