Two miners trapped all day after a roof of an Ohio mine collapsed have been rescued this evening.

Amy Louviere, a spokeswoman for the Mine Safety and Health Administration, said the two people became trapped about 9:30 a.m., when the roof of the Hopedale Mining Co. in Hopedale collapsed. Rescue workers were able to communicate with the miners, who said they were uninjured. Rescue crews tonight focused on removing rocks from the mine floor to clear a path to the trapped workers.
