Four miners trapped underground for 36 days in a collapsed Chinese gypsum mine were pulled out late Friday, a rescue hailed as a "miracle" in a country with a poor track record on industrial accidents.The final operation to save the men trapped more than 200 meters (660 feet) underground took two hours as they were hauled up to the surface one by one in a rescue "capsule", according to state broadcaster CCTV. The incident drew comparisons to a 2010 mining accident in the South American country of Chile, which saw 33 miners trapped underground for 69 days before their rescue.Of the 29 miners, 11 were rescued the following day and one was pronounced dead while 13 remained unaccounted for following the rescue, CCTV said.
