In Poland, 13 people are killed in mine accidents. 11 people are missing.

Dr. Przemyslaw Strzelec stated that the miner was taken to Siemianowice Sloskie hospital. This hospital specializes in treating burns.

Seven rescuers and miners were also killed in the blasts that occurred Wednesday and Thursday at Pniowek, near the Czech border.

After Thursday's explosions that injured 10 rescuers, the search for seven other missing persons was suspended.

13 rescue teams are working in the Borynia Zofiowka mine to find four missing miners. They were rescued on Saturday by methane gas and tremor teams. Six miners were killed in the accident.

The accidents have been investigated by the authorities. Jastrzebska Spolka Weglowa (JSW) operates the mines.

The majority of Polish coal mines are located in southern Silesia, and many of them have high levels methane.

About 70% of Poland's electricity comes from coal. This has been sharply criticised by the European Union as well as environmental groups concerned about climate change and CO2 emissions.

Poland has been working to reduce its coal use. In response to Moscow's invasion, Mateusz Morawiecki, Poland's Prime Minister, recently stated that Poland had stopped imports of coal from Russia and Belarus.

Since 1990, Poland has worked to reduce its dependence on Russian energy sources. This was during communist-era times.
