Trapped Chinese men file footage of plight

Authorities work around the clock to rescue three men stuck underground after tunnel collapsed over a week ago.

    Authorities in China are trying to reach three men trapped underground after the rail tunnel they were working on collapsed.

    Despite being cut off for more than a week, they have been in touch with their rescuers, sending out footage of themselves as they try to dig their way out.

    The plan to rescue them is to widen a narrow water pipe that runs below the collapsed tunnel .

    The authorities have co-ordinated their digging with the trapped men so that they reach each other in the next two days.
