33 Miners Missing, Presumed Trapped After Explosion In Chinese Coal Mine

October 31, 2016

More than 30 miners are presumed to be trapped underground after a gas explosion at a coal mine in China.

Rescue attempts are underway at the rural mine near the city of Chongqing.

State media report that the explosion hit Monday morning, NPR’s Rob Schmitz says, when 35 miners were working. Two of them escaped, but the other 33 are missing.

The fate of the 33 miners is unknown, China’s CCTV reports.

“An investigation is underway into the cause of the accident,” Rob says. “Last month, a gas explosion in a coal mine in northwestern China killed 20 miners. A preliminary investigation has found that accident was caused by illegal mining.”

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
