(KSL News) Three of the rescue miners injured in Thursday's mine collapse are still in the hospital, but they are improving.

We are told the rescue worker at the University of Utah Medical Center is currently in fair condition. He is recovering from facial surgery performed yesterday.

A rescuer at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center is also in fair condition. That rescuer will still need to have surgery to repair some broken bones. Officials for the hospital say it will be at least four more days until he is released.

No word on the rescuer at the Castleview Hospital in Price.
