Cave Rescue, December 6, 1986
Scott Hollow Cave, WV


REPORT

On December 6 a group of six entered Scott Hollow Cave in Monroe County, West Virginia. They split into two groups, one to push ahead and survey and the other to follow, surveying. The survey reached the top of a 25 foot pit with a continuation at the bottom. As Rusty Wilson stepped to the floor after descending, a rock fell striking him on the shin. He suffered a deep puncture wound with bleeding. A dressing, Ace bandage, and black electrical tape were applied and he was given two aspirin. They exited without further incident.
