BEIJING: More than 110 workers were pulled out of a Chinese coal mine Monday more than a week after being trapped by flooding, in what has been hailed as a miracle rescue in the notoriously dangerous industry.

So far, 114 workers have been brought out alive from the half-built Wangjialing mine in Shanxi province and taken to hospital for treatment, state television and the Xinhua news agency reported.


God knows we need good news like this in the midst of all those news about bombings, riots and crimes. Triple kudos to the survivors and rescuers!
