The critically injured died Sunday afternoon after treatment failed, the rescue headquarters said. Twenty-eight others were still being treated in hospital.
The accident occurred around 8:20 a.m. Saturday as a shuttle vehicle taking the 50 workers to the underground lost control due to faulty brakes and crashed into the side of the tunnel at a lead, zinc and silver mine under Yinman Mining Company in West Ujimqin Banner, Xilingol League.
