State media: China mine accident kills 13

Thirteen miners were killed and five are still missing after a "gas outburst" Tuesday at a coal mine in China's southwestern Guizhou province, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

Rescuers were continuing the search late Tuesday for the five missing miners at the Anping coal mine, the agency said. The bodies of 10 workers have been recovered.

    People of China and the Chinese President.
    Mr.President.in order to ensure worker and environmental safety,you need to follow President Obama's example and shut down all of your mining operations through out China and do an extensive investigation to make sure this do not happen again.If anyone out there believes the above will happen,I have a Monument in Washington D.C. I would like to sell you.

    Tragic. They may be from another country and thousands of miles away, but they were still just people working hard to bring a little money home to their families. Very sad.
