BEIJING: Rescue workers on Sunday (Jan 24) successfully lifted out one of 22 miners trapped for two weeks hundreds of metres underground in an east China mine, reported state broadcaster CCTV.

The man, discovered in a separate section of the mine to 10 workers who had already established contact with rescuers, was in “weak physical condition”, CCTV said.
