Slovak Coal Miners
- Hi All,
A rock fall caused by a flood trapped four miners in a coal mine in
central Slovakia, a mining company official said Thursday.
The flooding and rock fall occurred early Thursday at the Novaky coal
mine in the central Prievidza region, while the miners were carrying
out drilling work, said Iveta Rohacova a spokeswoman for the
Prievidza mining company.
Rohacova said that authorities launched a rescue operation. There was
no immediate information about the status of the trapped miners, she said.
