Eleven workers trapped for two weeks by an explosion 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, their eyes shielded to protect them after so many days in darkness.
One worker was reported to have died from a head wound following the blast that deposited massive amounts of rubble in the shaft on January 10 while the mine was still under construction.
The fate of 10 others who were underground at the time is unknown. Authorities have detained mine managers for delaying reporting the accident.
