Rescuers Lift Some Miners Trapped In South Africa

Emergency workers on Sunday started to rescue a group of at least 30 miners trapped in an abandoned gold shaft near Johannesburg, South Africa — but stopped after unearthing 11 people, local officials said. The miners, who were at the site illegally, have been in the mine near Benoni Central Business District, about 30 miles outside of Johannesburg, since Saturday, South African emergency services officials said. Emergency workers said they believe at least 20 miners remain below ground, but it was unclear how many more men there may be farther down the shaft. No injuries or casualties have been reported so far.
