Polish coal miners missing after natural disaster

An ambulance arrives at the Zofiowka coal mine. Three of seven missing men have been found

Prime-minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited with the hospitalized miners Saturday evening and achieved together with his or her own families.

"We had no contact with seven people, eight rescue units reached two miners who got up to the surface and now are being medically treated".

Rescuers battled in the early hours of Sunday to reach four coal miners who remained trapped almost one kilometre (0.6 mile) underground in southern Poland after an quake. He said there had been no contact with the remaining four miners.

Intially seven men were caught in the accident, but two have been rescued.

As Reuters reported, the rescuers have found another trapped miner, but his evacuation will take several hours.

The rescue operation was launched at 11:25 a.m. Saturday after a tremor occurred at the Zofiowka coal mine, said Katarzyna Jablonska-Bajer of the Jastrzebie Coal Company.

Three other miners have been missing some 900 meters (2,950 feet) below ground since Saturday morning at the mine in the town of Jastrzebie-Zdroj, close to Poland's border with the Czech Republic.

The head of the Jastrzebie Coal Company, Daniel Ozon, said a doctor confirmed the two fatalities and identification of the victims was underway.

A few of those miners remained lost, an official said Sunday. So far this year, six miners, including Sunday's casualties, have been killed at different mines, according to the State Mining Authority.

Rescue workers reached one more missing miner who was found dead on Sunday.

A woman cries out the Zofiowka Coalmine at Jastrzebie-Zdroj in southern Poland, in which many miners were reported lost after having a powerful natural disaster, May 5, 2018. They need to pump air in and lower the level of methane gas there before they can safely move in and reach the man, who is trapped under some metal and is not reacting, he said.
