Chinese state media say two miners have been rescued from a collapsed mine after spending 36 days trapped underground.

Efforts continued Friday to reach the remaining two people in the mine in east China's Shandong province.

The gypsum mine collapsed on Christmas Day, killing one and leaving 13 others missing. In the days that followed, rescuers detected four survivors 660 feet below the surface.

Eleven other people in the mine made it to safety or were rescued earlier.
