BEJING (AA) – Fourteen workers were rescued Sunday, 131 hours after being trapped in a railway tunnel in China’s southwestern Yunnan province.
Chinese state news agency Xinhua said one worker remains missing and all the rescued workers were in good health.
The collapse of Funing No. 1 tunnel took place in Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture’s eastern Funing County on Monday.
The tunnel lies on a key railway route that connects Yunnan with southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Just 27 hours after the collapse, the search and rescue teams sent food, water and electric torches to the trapped workers through an excavated tunnel.
