29 dead in gas explosion in Chinese mine
« on: October 30, 2011, 08:11:35 AM »
A gas explosion in a coal mine in Hunan Province, China, has killed 29 people.

From the article:
Six miners were being treated in hospital after being rescued from the Xialiuchong Coal Mine, owned by the Hengyang city government.

China's mines are the deadliest in the world, although the number of miners killed has been falling in recent years.
