BEIJING (AFP) - Three workers trapped in a mine in northeastern China since it flooded 10 days ago are unlikely to survive the disaster, the state Xinhua news agency said on Friday. Rescue workers on Tuesday pulled 19 miners from the pit in China's Heilongjiang province, providing a rare good-news story in an industry notorious for lax safety standards that kill thousands of workers every year. Efforts to rescue the three who remain trapped underground in the illegally-operated mine are continuing, but their chances of survival are slim, Xinhua reported. Xinhua said the men had been located, citing rescue workers, but it was not clear whether they were still alive.
