The victims who have been identified are 29-year-old Indonesian Wartono, 43-year-old Filipino Andree Abregana Serencio, and 32-year-old Indonesian Ersona.
The body of a fourth person who had been trapped was found at 8:40 a.m. and was identified as 47-year-old Filipino George Jagmis Impang.
The search is continuing for the last missing worker, believed to be Filipino Romulo Escalicas, according to the emergency center.
