WARSAW, Poland – The director of a Polish copper mine says rescue teams have recovered the bodies of the last three workers who were inside the mine when it caved in.

The discovery brought the death toll from the cave-in triggered by a tremor on Tuesday night to eight.

Director Pawel Markowski said Wednesday said the miners’ deaths were the greatest tragedy for the copper mining company KGHM in 55 years.

Five other miners have been hospitalized but their lives are not in danger and a few others escaped unscathed.
