Associated Press

Rescuers found a gold miner alive Friday after the man had been trapped two miles underground for more than two days.

The body of another missing miner also was found, raising to three the number of people killed in a 3.8-magnitude earthquake Tuesday at Anglo American Corp.'s Western Deep Levels East mine in Carletonville, south of Johannesburg.

Three more miners were still missing and the search continued, the company said in a statement.

The rescued miner was hospitalized in satisfactory condition.
