Beijing, China (CNN) -- Twenty-nine miners trapped in a flooded mine in China were still alive after more than 24 hours, and rescuers were lifting them out, state media reported Monday.
At least one miner was shown loaded on an emergency gurney on Monday on state television. The area around the mine was full of rescue workers and vehicles.
Earlier state media reports had said 28 miners were trapped in Sichuan province.
Mine accidents are common in China. In 2009, 2,631 people died in such accidents.
In April, the country launched a campaign to inspect safety regulations in mines and other industries that have had serious accidents.
