Authorities have rescued 11 miners trapped in the gold mine on Sunday, which collapsed in China’s Shandong province, state media reported.

Two weeks after the deadly explosion, rescuers have finally managed to lift the trapped miners to the surface, with one dead, following his head injury. 

The rescued have reported to be already in a stable condition. 

Out of the 22 miners stuck underground, the rest of the 10 are yet to be brought to safety. 

Officials said last week, it would still take another two weeks before they could rescue the rest.

There are over 600 rescuers working to save the stuck laborers, drilling holes to detect life signals as well as to bring down food and medical supplies. 

The blast on January 10 trapped the miners in Shandong nearly 600 meters below the ground.
