 At Least 10 Dead In Jharkhand Coal Mine Collapse

At least 10 people have been killed and many others are feared trapped inside a coal mine in the Indian state of Jharkhand after a section of the mine collapsed.

A massive mound of earth caved in late on Thursday at the Lalmatia open cast mine in Jharkhand state, burying at least 23 miners and dozens of vehicles as hundreds of workers battled overnight to rescue them.

Some of the workers had escaped the disaster site following the collapse.

Police and emergency workers used sniffer dogs, earth movers and their bare hands to remove giant rocks and mangled, overturned trucks to locate the trapped workers under tons of earth.
