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.
