MANKAYAN, Benguet – Two young miners cheated death here when a private mine tunnel collapsed trapping them here Tuesday around 11 a.m. in Sitio Dugong, Barangay Taneg.

The miners were rescued by their fellow miners. A police report said the tunnel was owned and operated by Dario Antonio of Taneg. Prior to the incident, the miners went out for a coffee break. Later, two miners identified as Wilson Sanwen Jr., 16 and Harvey Tauli, 19, both from Lenga, Tadian, Mt. Province returned to the tunnel to continue their work.
