Farmers turn away from mining work – Xinhua

From Xinhua – English:

Chen Yuemin, 47, a farmer from Quannan County, east China’s Jiangxi Province, might never expect that his quest for more money and a better life would be ended in such a tragic way.

Chen, who switched to work on a coal mine seven hours’ bus ride away from his home just one year after having tilled the land for more than three decades, was one of the 123 miners who were killed on Aug. 7 in a flooding taking place at the Daxing Coal Mine of Xingning City, Guangdong Province.

Only four miners escaped the coal mine flooding tragedy that day.
