Hopes of Survival for Remaining China Miners Dim

Ad Feedback

The chance of survival for 11 miners trapped underground in China is fading.

Rescuers have located the miners, but it could take up to three or four days to reach them. Security has been tightened around the mine entrance and family members were asked to leave.

So far, 26 workers have died in the mine explosion that took place Saturday morning.

The blast at the Pingyu Coal & Electric Co. Ltd. mine occurred as workers were drilling a hole to release pressure from a gas build-up to decrease the risk of explosions.

It's unclear how far underground the workers are.
