The burst happened at 11:18 a.m. on Thursday, when 18 miners were working in a shaft of Qianqiu Coal Mine, owned by the Henan Yima Coal Industry Group. Twelve miners escaped, Xinhua reported.

Rock burst accidents are often caused by fractures in the rock because of mining. They can trigger mining lanes to cave-in, leading to casualties.
