As of 6 p.m. Sunday, June 6, three bodies had been recovered from the Mexican mine in Múzquiz, Coahuila, which collapsed on Friday, June 4.

At least seven miners were trapped inside the caved-in mine after they accidentally penetrated the wall of an adjoining mine, reportedly flooding it, leaving the hopes for any of the workers making it out alive minimal.

The first two bodies were recovered on Saturday, June 5, with the third successfully retrieved on early Sunday morning before 7 a.m.

Coahuila Governor Miguel Ángel Riquelme announced on Saturdaythat rescuers had located a point in the mine where several of the miners were expected to be found, and they have continued efforts to drain the flooded area.
