|Rescuers using infrared cameras to peer into darkness at a wrecked Yurong Gypsum Mine in Shandong province, eastern China on December 30th found four surviving miners who had been trapped
for five days after a collapse so violent it registered as a seismic event.
On Friday night, January 29, 2016, after 36 days, these four miners were finally pulled to the surface. Rescuers lowered a cable to the miners at the collapsed gypsum mine in eastern China's Pingyi County and, after the miners attached themselves to a harness, used it to pull them out one by one. The rescue was called off on February 6, 2016. More
