BEIJING Rescuers discovered signs of life on Sunday from 22 gold miners trapped underground by an explosion in eastern China a week after the explosion, state media reported.
Rescuers drilled into the mine on Sunday afternoon and heard "knocking noises," the official Xinhua News Agency said, although they still "needed confirmation."
In December, 23 miners died after being trapped in a mine in the southwestern city of Chongqing, just months after 16 more died of carbon monoxide poisoning after being trapped underground in another coal mine in the city.
