The early hours of this morning witnessed an underground tremor at the Myslovice mine in Silesia, Poland, resulting in a distressing incident where four miners went missing. The event occurred at 3:30 a.m. local time at a depth of 665 meters, as reported by RMF24.

A spokesperson for the Polish Mining Group disclosed that at the time of the tremor, fifteen miners were working within the affected zone.

While eleven managed to escape without injury, four remain unaccounted for.

An urgent search and rescue operation within the mine is currently underway.

This is the second mining accident in Poland in just a few days.

On the night of May 10, another tragic event took place when a miner died after falling into a conveyor belt at a different mine.

Additionally, the country has experienced a series of fires, including a significant blaze that destroyed a shopping mall in Warsaw and another large fire at a car park near Katowice. Several smaller incidents have also been reported.

Authorities are currently investigating these occurrences, with some speculations pointing towards potential hostile activities as a contributing factor.
