At least 18 miners died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a mining accident in southwest China. A total of 24 people were trapped underground, the state broadcaster CCTV reported on Saturday. A miner was found alive from the Diaoshuidong mine in Chongqing. It was initially unclear how the fatal leak of the colorless and odorless gas could occur.
At the end of September there was an accident on the outskirts of the metropolis of Chongqing, with 16 dead in a coal mine. Back then, too, workers died of carbon monoxide poisoning after a conveyor belt caught fire underground.
