BEIJING – Ten miners have died after a platform overturned in a coal mine in northwest China.
China's official Xinhua News Agency says the accident happened Thursday night in Gansu province in a mine that was under construction.
Xinhua says the last body was pulled from the mine Saturday morning. It says the miners were plunged into water when the platform overturned. No other details were given.
China has the world's deadliest coal mine industry. Safety improvements have reduced deaths in recent years, but safety rules are often ignored and accidents are still common.
