Three workers found dead and one alive after a coal mine, where they were working at a depth of over 100 meters under the ground, collapsed in Cam Pha town of the northern province of Quang Ninh on August 13 night.

At 2pm on August 14, rescue forces found and took the four trapped men out of the mine. Only Viet has fortunately escaped the death as a steel net covered his body, creating an empty space for him to breathe amid the huge heap of soil and stones.

The accident occurred at the coal mine of Mong Duong Coal Company. The four victims include deputy foreman Nguyen Thanh Binh, 38, and three workers Ngo Van Dau, 27, Nguyen Van Doan, 25, and Nguyen Van Viet, 22.
