Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki on Wednesday announced the government will offer special pensions to the families of five miners who were killed in the aftermath of a tremor that hit the Zofiówka coal mine in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, southern Poland, on May 5.
"We join in the pain felt by the families and relatives of the victims," the prime minister wrote on Twitter.
"Id like to thank the more than 2,000 rescuers and everyone involved in the rescue operation in KWK Zofiówka. For your work in the most difficult conditions and under time pressure. Your attitude commands the highest recognition and respect. Thank you," the prime minister also said.
Seven miners were trapped 900 metres underground after the tremor. Rescuers managed to bring two of them to the surface alive. Two miners were dead, while three were missing. The bodies of two miners were found on Sunday.
The body of the last miner was pulled to the surface at around 3 a.m. on Wednesday. (PAP)
