5 people trapped in Virginia cave rescued: Officials

A group of men who became stuck in a cave in Virginia after rain made it difficult to get out have been rescued, officials said Sunday.

A group of six initially planned to spend the weekend inside the cave in Cleveland, Virginia, until it began raining late Saturday night, Jess Powers, coordinator for the Russell County Emergency Management, told ABC News. The rain caused the ground inside the cave to become slippery, making it difficult for the men to get out, Powers said.

One person managed to escape, but the other five remained trapped in the cave, he added.

  1. Those 5 men that got stuck are my family, and they got out fine, they did have hypothermia but they got rid of it in a few days and they could've got out but the ropes were muddy, and they had food but they didn't think it was gonna rain so they brought a little food with them, and they had permission to go on the property

  2. Be careful around caves, and always double if not triple check weather reports. The water table can do funny things to block your exit path. And that's if you're lucky, if the cave network works against you you'll just be completely drowned.

  3. I can appreciate that people want an adventure, but I dont think most consider the risk & danger they not only take themselves, but they put their rescuers in when they are unable to get out of these situations on their own.

  4. Still waiting for the ABC News report on the shooting near a Baptist Church in Baltimore. 1 death, 7 injured, but doesn't warrant reporting on, no press conferences and no increased police presence in the area !! WHY ?
