Gold mine workers rescued in China after 2 weeks

Eleven workers trapped for two weeks inside a Chinese gold mine have been brought safely to the surface. State broadcaster CCTV showed workers being hauled up one by one in baskets on Sunday afternoon, their eyes shielded to protect them after so many days in darkness. Some brought their hands together in gratitude and many appeared almost too weak to stand. They were swiftly covered in coats in freezing temperatures and loaded into ambulances.
