KUNMING, July 20 (Xinhua) -- Fourteen workers were rescued out of a railway tunnel collapse in southwest China's Yunnan Province at early hours of Sunday after more than five days of rescue operation.

The survivors were sent to a hospital nearby for medical treatment and psychological counseling according to their conditions, local authorities said.

However, one person remains missing and the rescue operation continues.

The tunnel collapsed at around 4 p.m. Monday in Funing County of Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture of Wenshan, trapping 15 workers. Rescuers had drilled a hole in the collapsed tunnel and managed to send food, water and flashlights to the workers.

The tunnel, known as Funing No. 1 tunnel, was on a pivotal railway linking Yunnan with south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
