Expert: psychologists should be included in rescue team for trapped miners
The rescue efforts for 22 trapped miners are underway, 13 days after an explosion in east China. The location of 12 trapped miners was confirmed. One died after being in a coma for two days due to severe injuries. Authorities said it might take 15 days or longer to rescue them. Rescuers are working on drilling a shaft with a diameter of 711mm to extract the miners.
CGTN talked to Li Ying, CEO of Eins Psychology, who said psychologists should be included in the rescue team to help the miners keep the will to survive and remain calm to consume less energy and maintain a connection to the outside world.
