Four farmers remained trapped beneath the shaft of a flooded coal pit in Lianzhou City, South China's Guangdong Province.

The flooding took place at the coal pit with Daoliushui Villagein Jiubei Township of Lianzhou City, situated in the mountainous northwestern part of Guangdong, on Monday when five farmers were digging coal inside the coal pit without legal license.

One of the farmers managed to escape, local sources said.

The coal pit, without proper equipment for coal production suchas power supply, was shut down time and again. But the coal bed is shallow and is easily dug, farmers from nearby areas often sneak down the shaft to dig coal.

Rescue operation for those trapped is going on.

Cause of the flooding is under investigation.
