Many rescues at flooding China mine

There hadn't been much hope of finding 153 Chinese miners

alive in a flooded shaft but many of them are.

 

More than 100 have been pulled out alive after being trapped for

more than a week. Rescuers in tears hugged each other at the scene,

which was broadcast on national television. The sudden surge in

rescues was a rare piece of good news for China's mining industry,

the deadliest in the world.

 

A mine spokesman in China says a miracle has happened.

China Central Television says some of the miners managed to

attach themselves to a wall with their belts and hung there for

three days before getting into a mining cart that floated by.
