Rescue teams have confirmed the death of a second Polish coal miner and are searching for three more trapped almost a kilometer underground after a quake, the chief executive of the mine owner said. Four miners had yet to be located.
Some 200 miners involved in the rescue were working in sweltering heat around a kilometre beneath the surface to find the three missing miners after one was found dead.
Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited the two rescued miners in hospital after meeting with mining officials late on Saturday.
A 3.42 magnitude-earthquake that struck a coal mine in Poland killed at least one miner; four others are now missing, the CEO of the company which owns the site stated, as quoted by Reuters. Two were rescued earlier with injuries that were not life-threatening. Daniel Ozon, president of the Jastrzebska Spolka Weglowa S.A. company, who runs the mine, said that the representatives of the company were in constant contact with the families of the miners, who have been provided with psychological help.
So far this year, four miners have been killed at different coal mines, according to the State Mining Authority.
