Four of the miners remained missing, an official said Sunday. Two miners were rescued on Saturday.

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

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

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.

Polish rescue workers say they have found a second body after an natural disaster hit a coal mine in southern Poland. So far this year, five miners including Sunday's casualty have been killed at different mines, according to the State Mining Authority.
