State TV says 9 rescued from flooded Chinese mine

State television says nine workers have been pulled to safety after spending more than a week trapped in a flooded coal mine in China.
China Central Television showed images early Monday of the miners being rushed away in ambulances to hospitals after being rescued.
They were among 153 miners trapped since March 28 when workers broke a wall into an abandoned shaft, flooding the mine in Shanxi province in northern China. About 3,000 people have been working around the clock since then to pump out water.
