The last of 16 miners trapped in a flooded gold mine in the northern Philippines was rescued after 11 days, an official said Saturday. George Baywong, a Mines and Geosciences Bureau officer who supervised the rescue efforts, said Joseph Anayasan was pulled out of the mine in Itogon township in Benguet province around nightfall Friday. "It was miraculous," he said of the miner's survival. Anayasan was immediately whisked away by his relatives to evade police, who have a standing warrant for his arrest on theft and robbery charges, Baywong said.
