 of  coal  mine  accidents:  BEIJING  -­‐  The  countrys  work  safety  authorities  have   vowed  to  crack  down  on  coal  mine  accident  cover-­‐ups,  which  are  now  rampant  in  the  industry.     The  Work  Safety  Committee  under  the  State  Council,  revealed  in  a  statement  on  Friday  the  attempts  to  cover-­‐up  six  major   coal  mine  accidents  that  killed  a  total  of  42  miners  since  April.   Five  of  the  accidents  were  investigated  after  local  work  safety  departments  received  tip-­‐offs,  while  the  other  was  reported  to   the  safety  watchdog  after  a  days  delay.  The  cover-­‐ups  included  removing  the  dead  miners  bodies  from  mines  and  forging   the  miners  shift  logs.   Covering  up  mine  accidents  is  a  crime  in  China,  which  usually  leads  to  jail  terms  of  up  to  seven  years  and  the  committee  said   it  will  supervise  the  handling  of  all  the  six  cases  by  local  governments.   Cover-­‐ups  of  coal  mine  accidents  are  said  to  be  common  in  Southwest  Chinas  Yunnan  province,  Xinhua  News  Agency   15-­‐Apr-­‐11   42   reported  over  the  weekend.   Crushed  By

 administration  of   Qujing.  The  mine  owner  had  conducted  the  cover-­‐up  with  the  help  of  the  local  township  department  in  charge  of  regulating   coal  mining,  said  Zhang  Chunsheng,  deputy  chief  of  the  Yunnan  administration  of  coal  mine  safety.   Lu  Erchang,  the  mines  owner,  confessed  to  local  police  that  he  had  directed  his  daughter  to  make  a  payment  of  one  million   yuan  ($154,000)  in  hush  money  to  the  family  of  each  dead  miner  in  addition  to  680,000  yuan  in  compensation.  As  a  result,   the  families  rejected  autopsy  requests  from  the  police,  saying  that  the  miners  had  died  from  diseases.   The  mines  owner  was  also  found  to  have  acquired  the  help  of  the  local  regulatory  body  to  remove  the  bodies  of  four  dead   miners,  forge  their  shift  logs  and  destroy  some  related  materials,  said  Zhang.   The  miner  owner  and  the  townships  regulatory  department  chief

 officers  were  called  to  Construction  Tire  at  2199  NW  10th  St.  when  they   received  a  report  about  someone  trapped  under  a  loader.  Officers  talked  with  several  people  at  the  compound  about  the   16-­‐Apr-­‐11   1   Crushed  By   Retail   United  States   Florida   accident,  and  while  none  had  witnessed  it,  they  shared  their  account  of  how  they  frantically  did  what  they  could  to  remove   Fort  from  under  the  loader  as  quickly  as  possible.   Officer  Jose  Gonzalez’s  report  states  that  several  employees  assisted  in  trying  to  remove  the  56-­‐year-­‐old  man.  Before   managing  to  free  him  from  beneath  the  loader,  those  who  rendered  aid  had  used  a  forklift,  powered  jacks,  anything  they   could  find  to  raise
