Coal mine accident
One person has died in an accident at a coal mine in China. On the other hand, seven more people are missing. This information has been confirmed in a report of the state media CCTV on Saturday.

This accident outburst happened at a coal mine run by Henan Hebi Coal and Electricity Co on Friday. Local authorities in Henan Province have launched an emergency rescue operation.

Authorities shut down another Hebi Coal mine earlier because it did not follow proper rules and regulations. However, the provincial government said last month that they would approve the reopening of the mine.

Mining accidents have become very common in China. Safety rules are not properly followed in various mines. As a result, many workers are often killed in accidents. Illegal mining activities are going on in different places without the attention of the authorities. In recent times, the authorities have been conducting security operations in various coal mines of the country.

Earlier in April, at least 21 workers were trapped in an accident at a coal mine in the northwestern Uyghur province of Xinjiang.

In addition, in December 2020, a gas leak at a coal mine in the country killed 16 people. Five more people are missing after a carbon monoxide gas leak at the coal mine in the southwest.

In September of the same year, 18 workers died due to excessive production of carbon monoxide while working in another mine.
