Chinese miners make it out alive on coal and jokes about their wives

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

If you weren’t aware:

Eight Chinese miners are missing after another coal shaft was flooded, this time in southwest China, local media reported on Friday, a week after a mine flood in eastern China trapped and likely killed 181 miners.

Emergency crews continued to try to reach the 181 miners trapped in the eastern province of Shandong, but an official has said there is “no hope” of survivors in one of the nation’s worst mine disasters.

But good news today on two miners that ended up surviving via jokes about their wives, eating coal, and drinking…umm…stuff (do what you have to do to survive and make it out alive):
