BEIJING, Jan 24 — Efforts to save 22 miners trapped hundreds of metres underground for two weeks in east China have sped up dramatically, as rescue workers lifted out seven people today and hope to reach more, state media reported.

The first miner, brought to the surface at around 11am, was rushed to hospital in “extremely weak physical condition”, reported state broadcaster CCTV. He was discovered in a separate section of the mine to a group of ten the rescuers had previously contacted.

“The second batch of trapped miners were lifted out at 1.32pm — they were three of the ten workers trapped in the fifth middle section whom (rescuers) already contacted. One of them is injured,” reported CCTV.

A third group of three miners was brought out at around 2pm, CCTV reported.

Rescuers hope to save all ten miners in the first group today after the air ventilator shaft was cleared, the official state news agency Xinhua reported, citing the operation’s command centre.

Specialist teams have been battling difficult conditions to help the workers since an explosion at the Hushan mine in Shandong province sealed them underground amid rising waters on January 10.
