REPORT

Several tourists had taken a wild cave tour. A large man (2) fell about five feet onto his knee apparently suffering torn ligaments. ER-NCRC had just completed a practice training session only minutes before, re-entered and evacuated the victim in 17 minutes.

Twenty minutes late a team was sent to the rear of the cave to find four disoriented tourists.
