Two of the seven miners originally trapped after the quake, which struck Zofiowka in the Silesian coal basin on Saturday morning, managed to escape within hours with only minor injuries. "There are three rescue units more joining the operation which is going on", said JSW Coal's Daniel Ozon.

A few of those miners remained lost, an official said Sunday.

He also visited the two rescued miners at the Jastrzebie-Zdroj hospital.

Rescue teams have confirmed the death of one Polish coal miner and can see another miner trapped after an natural disaster, but three others are still missing, the chief executive of mine owner JSW, Daniel Ozon, said. Seven miners went missing after the strongest ever tremor at the mine.

Two had been rescued by mid-afternoon, and one was found late on Saturday but showed no signs of life, the deputy chief executive of the mine owner JSW, Tomasz Sledz, told reporters. So far this year, six miners, including Sunday's casualties, have been killed at different mines, according to the State Mining Authority.




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.

Initially JSW said there was some hope the missing miners could have taken another exit but it was later revealed there was just one way out.

More than 200 rescue and support workers are pressing to reach five miners trapped after authorities said an natural disaster hit a coal mine in southern Poland.

So there's been no contact with the four staff, who were caught 2,950 ft Under Ground. 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.
