Coal mine floods in north China, 12 miners trapped

BEIJING (AP) — A coal mine in northern China flooded and trapped 12 miners, the country's safety watchdog said Sunday.

The accident happened around 11 p.m. Saturday in Shanxi, a coal-rich province.

The State Administration of Work Safety said in an online statement that 94 miners were working underground in the locally state-owned mine and the other 82 were rescued.

China's mines had long been the world's deadliest, but safety improvements have reduced deaths in recent years.
