      GUIYANG (Xinhua) -- Eight workers were trapped in a flooded coal mine in southwest China on Tuesday night, a local official said Wednesday.

      The flooding occurred at about 9 p.m. Tuesday at a coal mine at the border of Dushan County in Guizhou Province and Nandan County in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said Pan Zhili, the chief of the Dushan County Committee of the Communist Party of China.

      Rescue workers were still trying to reach the trapped miners, Pan said.

      The mine was operating illegally and owned by people from Guizhou and Guangxi, he added.

      In another coal mine flooding in Guiyang, the provincial capital of Guizhou, rescuers have found one body while 11 others remained trapped three days after the accident.
