Brief Summary
On 24-Nov-2009 at approximately 9:00 p.m. 26-year-old John Jones became trapped in an unnamed passage in Nutty Putty Cave. The rescue effort that ensued ultimately was unable to free him before he died approximately 28 hours after being trapped.

This purpose of this topic is to provide a repository for, at least, the following:

  • The official account of the rescue from the Utah County Sheriff's Office
  • The accident report that presumably will be submitted to American Caving Accidents, a publication of the National Speleological Society.
  • A set of links that provide a reasonable cross-section of the news reports covering the incident as it unfolded.
