Cave Rescue, November 22, 1986
Scott Hollow Cave, WV


REPORT

On November 22, three cavers were in Scott Hollow Cave in Monroe County, West Virginia, surveying. One took a short fall, caught himself with his left hand and dislocated his shoulder. His companions went for help and initiated a rescue call-out. There was a mile of cave and two vertical drops between the victim and the entrance. But, "not having much else to do," he started out, exiting just before midnight.
