Cave Rescue, Summer, 1992

Long-Cock Cave, PA


REPORT

On a supervised (grotto?) trip to Long-Cock Cave, in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, the trip leader was unaware that a guest from a different grotto was on her first wild cave experience. She thus apparently was not closely watched and reportedly fell into a 20-foot pit, suffering a broken ankle. Some of the cavers in the group had National Cave Rescue Commission training and conducted her rescue.
