At least 25 workers have been killed after a section of a coal mine in the US state of West Virginia collapsed following an explosion.

Officials on Tuesday said that four others were still trapped more than a 1,000 feet underground at Massey Energy Company’s Upper Big Branch mine in Montcoal, Raleigh County.

Earlier, Kevin Stricklin, an administrator for the federal mine safety and health administration, said officials hoped some of the missing had survived the initial blast and were able to reach airtight chambers stocked with food, water and enough oxygen for them to live for four days.
