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. The missing miners were from a team of 11 that was drilling a new tunnel.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited the hospitalized miners Saturday night and met with their families. Rescuers are working to free another trapped miner, while three others remain missing.

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.

Four of the miners remained missing, an official said Sunday. "A physician has pronounced him dead", Daniel Ozon, the CEO of the Jastrzebie Coal Company (JSW) managing the mine, told reporters on Sunday.

The first victim, initially identified by Ozon as a 38-year-old man, had been trapped under some metal.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who reached the mine on Saturday evening, said the rescue operation was very hard and that he hoped the remaining miners would be saved.

The rescue was launched Saturday morning after a quake hit the mine in the town of Jastrzebie-Zdroj near Poland's border with the Czech Republic.

So far there has been no contact with the four workers, who were stuck 2,950 feet underground.

An ambulance arrives in southern Poland following a quake at the Zofiowka coal mind in Jastrzebie-Zdroj. Unexpected emergency staff pumped air in to the impacted area to lower the level of methane fuel until they may safely proceed, Ozon explained.
