BEIJING -- Rescuers on Friday pulled out four miners who had spent 36 days trapped underground in a collapsed mine in China, state media reported.
The gypsum mine in east China's Shandong province collapsed on Christmas Day, killing one and leaving 17 missing, including the four survivors. In the days that followed, rescuers detected the four 200 metres below the surface.
Eleven other people in the mine made it to safety or were rescued earlier.
