All 11 miners trapped in a mine in southwest China’s Yunnan Province have been brought out to safety after 40 hours of rescue.
The trapped miners were carried out on stretchers early Monday morning through a tunnel excavated during the rescue.
A cave-in occurred at the stannum mine in Lianghe County at around 1 p.m. Saturday, when the miners were working underground.
Local authorities said the accident was caused by a mudflow triggered by continuous downpours in the county.
Local authorities mobilized some 1,000 people for the rescue.
