Two people were missing and 138 were stranded after a landslide in south China’s Hainan Province Saturday, a local government spokesman said Sunday.
The landslide occurred at around 3:10 p.m. Saturday in the Diaoluo Mountain region in Lingshui County of Hainan Province, the spokesman said.
A forestry worker and a local farmer were missing after the landslide, while 125 tourists and 13 staff of the Diaoluo Mountain Forestry Bureau were stranded, according to the spokesman.
Heavy rains had pounded the mountain region since September 30, which triggered the landslide on Saturday, the spokesman said, adding that the landslide had buried a 100-meter-long road in the area.
A helicopter was sent to rescue the trapped and search for the missing.
None of the stranded people’s lives were at risk and their daily necessities were guaranteed, according to a spokesman with the Forestry Bureau.
