123 trapped in flooded coal mine in northern China
At least 123 people were trapped underground Sunday after water gushed into a coal mine in northern China, a government agency said. The Wangjialing coal mine in Shanxi province was flooded by underground water as 261 miners were working in the pit, the State Administration of Work Safety said on its Web site. The administration said 138 of the miners were lifted safely to the ground but the others remained trapped and rescue work was under way. It said the cause of the flood was still under investigation. Although China's mine safety record has improved in recent years, it is still the deadliest in the world, with blasts and other accidents common.
