Rescue workers on Sunday freed seven people who had been trapped hundreds of meters below ground in a gold mine in northern China’s Shandong province. They were among 22 miners caught in a blast in the Hushan mine in Qixia, a major gold-producing region, on January 10. The first man was brought to the surface at around 11 a.m. and was in an “extremely weak” condition, according to a post on state media CCTV’s Weibo microblogging site. Video footage showed him being lifted out of the mine shaft with a black blindfold across his eyes. He was covered in a blanket before being carried away by rescue workers and taken to hospital for treatment. Hours afterwards, another three miners were rescued from a different part of the mine. Three more were later pulled to safety from the same section. They were among a group of 10 miners who had been in contact with rescue teams.
