LIMA - Nine workers trapped inside a wildcat mine in southern Peru received oxygen and liquids through a giant hose on Saturday while a rescue team toiled to get them out, officials said.

The men have been stuck about 656 feet (200 meters) below ground since the Cabeza de Negro gold-and-copper mine partially collapsed on Thursday.

"We've communicated with them and they are in good health, thankfully," police officer Jose Saavedra told local radio.

A regional health official, however, said the miners were suffering from dehydration and feelings of desperation.
