Chinese Workers Saved from Critical Condition in DPRK
| Pyongyang, September 14 (KCNA) -- Six Chinese workers were saved from a critical condition after being hit hard by heavy rains and landslide in a mining area of Jangjin County, South Hamgyong Province.
On August 28, typhoon-15 struck Jangjin County as well as other areas of the DPRK, causing heavy rains and landslide and inflicting huge losses upon its residents.
The flood-stricken mine was left without any contact with outside, looking like an isolated islet.
The Chinese workers active there were also in hard conditions.
The residents and the Chinese workers strove hard to overcome the disaster, sharing warm feelings, but their conditions became from bad to worse as the days go by as there was lack of food and medicine.
Upon learning about this, the dear respected Kim Jong Un gave an instruction to conduct an operation to rescue the Chinese workers.
By an order of Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, a helicopter flew to the area but faced great difficulties.
The worsening weather conditions and the landslide made it hard for the copter to spot the mining area and find any proper place for landing.
It succeeded in landing thanks to the matchless courage of its pilots and conveyed relief goods, but it could not take off due to its damaged aerofoil.
Kim Jong Un sent a plane there, saying the Chinese workers should be rescued come what may.
The Chinese workers were finally rescued from the natural disaster thanks to the strong sense of internationalist obligation and warm loving care of Kim Jong Un who has paid deep attention to developing the DPRK-China friendly relations provided and valued by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
Upon deplaning, they went to the Chinese embassy here and asked it to convey their profound thanks to the DPRK side.
