Cave Rescue, August 4, 1991
Lawrence Domepit Cave, WV


REPORT

On Sunday, August 4, cavers visited Lawrence Domepit (Fieldhouse) Cave in Pendleton County, West Virginia. The cave has tight, awkward climbs and one caver (30) suffered a dislocated shoulder. Help was sought and the victim was carried from the cave. This was made difficult due to the nature of the cave but aided by the fact that the victim was conscious and able to help. Because of a fluctuating blood pressure he was flown by Healthnet to a hospital in Morgantown.
