WARSAW, Poland (AP) - A Polish TV station is reporting that 19 coal miners have been rescued from a mine following an earthquake.
TVN24 said the quake struck Tuesday evening with a magnitude of 4.7, and caused rocks to fall, trapping the miners about 3,120 feet underground in southern Poland. Four others were able to get out early.
A team of 25 worked seven hours to reach the men.
One suffered minor injuries to his head but all the others are in good shape and are going home.
