<vote /> An unknown number of Zimbabwean illegal miners are part of dozens still trapped underground George Harrison Park, a disused gold mine in Langlaagte, Johannesburg. The mine collapsed last week when the victims were panning for gold.
South African police say an additional 16 people went down the mine in search of the victims but they were trapped inside as well.
Some Zimbabweans with relatives trapped inside the collapsed mine tried to forcibly enter the mine shaft but were discouraged by the police.
People, who were pulled out of the mine alive without any injuries, were immediately taken to the nearest police station for questioning.
