WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- A Polish TV station is reporting that 19 coal miners were trapped underground in a mine after an earthquake but that a rescue effort succeeded in getting them all out after a seven-hour search.
TVN24 said the quake struck Tuesday evening with a magnitude of 4.7. That caused rocks to fall, trapping the miners about 950 meters (3,120 feet) underground at the Rudna copper mine in Polkowice, 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.
They will be able to return to work on Thursday.
