Beijing: At least six workers have been killed after a landslide struck a rubber factory in southwest China’s Yunnan province.
The workers were building a wall yesterday at the foot of a 50-meter tall mound, which was part of the craggy mountains against which the rubber factory compound in Mengla County was built, when the landslide hit the area.
The mound collapsed burying seven workers under the debris. The only survivor rescued was still in a coma after brain surgery at a local hospital, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Rescuers searched for survivors throughout the night the bodies of all the victims were retrieved.
