Five workers trapped inside Mexico coal mine

Saturday, August 04, 2012

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico (AP) — Emergency crews are working to rescue five workers trapped inside a coal mine that partially collapsed in northern Mexico, near where seven miners were killed in an explosion last week.

Mine owner Grupo Acerero del Norte says six miners were initially trapped yesterday but that one has been rescued.

It says in a statement that its own rescue personnel are working to get the workers out of the mine in the town of Nueva Rosita, in the state of Coahuila bordering Texas.

Seven miners were killed last week in an apparent methane gas explosion inside a coal mine near Nueva Rosita.

That explosion occurred at the El Progreso mine, about 90 miles (150 kilometres) southwest of the border city of Eagle Pass, Texas.
