A group of coal miners from the western province of Xinjiang, had an unbelievable surprise when the gallery they were excavating opened up on a section of an old mine, that was abandoned 17 years ago

after an earthquake that caused some large sections of the tunnels to collapse. While they were exploring the galleries, they stumbled upon Cheung Wai, a 59-year old survivor from the 1997 accident, obviously in a rather bad shape. He was immediately taken to the hospital where a complete evaluation of his physical and mental states will be done over the next weeks.

Cheung remained trapped with 118 dead bodies of his fellow miners, when an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude shook the region and caused cracking of the wooden structures that held the tunnel. Even though Cheung was saved because there was a ventilation hole that somehow remained connected with the surface, allowing him to breathe clean air.

Another thing that helped him survive was eating lots of rice and water as these food reserves are always left in mines in case of such situations. The trapped miner also ate rats and moss.

This remains a unique case of a man being able to survive for so long in such terrible conditions.

The case of Mr. Cheung remains unique however, and constitutes a world record, according to the universally recognized authority on record-breaking achievement, Guinness. The former record for surviving underground was of 142 days and was held by a british man named Geoff Smith. He had been voluntarily buried in the backyard of the Railway Inn, his favorite pub, with the intention of breaking the record.
