Two miners dead after tremor in coal mine in south Poland

Rescuers have not been able to establish communication with any of three other missing men, Ozon said, adding that rescuers were building ventilation shafts to dispel high levels of methane hindering their efforts.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who came to Jastrzebie Zdroj on Saturday night, visited the hospitalized miners and met with their families.

Two of the seven were later found alive and have been hospitalized.

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 natural disaster. The mine is in the southern town of Jastrzebie-Zdroj near Poland's border with the Czech Republic.

A mining official says a 38-year-old miner found Sunday by rescuers is dead, after a quake hit a colliery in southern Poland. "A physician has pronounced him dead", Daniel Ozon, the CEO of the Jastrzebie Coal Company (JSW) managing the mine, told reporters on Sunday. According to them, it is very important that the trapped miners have enough air to breath. Two injured miners were rescued from the mine Saturday and are being treated in the hospital.

More than 200 workers were involved in the rescue operation, working through twisted machinery and metal parts to get to the area where they expected to find the missing men.
