Three emergency crews took part in a dramatic five hour operation in a cave in Moravsky Kras to save a cave explorer who lay injured at the bottom of the cave. The young man slipped and fell from a height of ten meters dislocating his shoulder and injuring his head. The team of explorers he was with could not bring him out because the opening to the cave was too narrow. The opening had to be widened with explosives and rescue workers then carried him on a stretcher through difficult terrain to a site accessible by ambulance. The man was admitted to hospital with severe hypothermia but is said to be recovering.
