Cave Rescue, November 5, 1984
Breathing Cave, VA


A man leading a group of teenagers took a fall into a pit and though not seriously injured, could not get out. Two 13 year olds went for help. A call produced response from grotto cavers, NCRC, CRCN, and a rescue squad. The victim was helped up the crevice and exited under his own power. Unfortunately the kids had wrecked his car going for help.
