Several dozen miners trapped in Zimbabwe after rains flooded mines while they were underground.
State broadcaster ZBC said late on Wednesday that 38 miners were trapped underground.
Reports say the gold miners went underground near the town of Kadoma before heavy rains destroyed a dam wall, resulting in massive flooding.
Police say rescue teams and pumps to drain the water were mobilized.
Large groups of men, women and children using picks, shovels and hoes are a common sight in Zimbabwe’s mineral-rich fields.
The miners operate without regulation and safety standards are hardly practised.
