Hundreds of rescuers Tuesday were struggling to find 18 coal miners still trapped a day after a gas explosion killed 15 of their colleagues in western China.Whether the 18 are alive was not known more than 24 hours after the blast ripped through the privately owned Jinshangou mine in the sprawling Chongqing region. Just two miners were confirmed to have survived the blast.The head of China's State Administration of Work Safety said earlier this year that struggling coal mines might be likely to overlook maintenance.
