A rescue team was able to free a speleologist trapped in the Nová Drátenická cave in Moravský kras (Moravian Karst) on Sunday. The man’s legs were pinned in an apparent cave-in; a spokesman for the fire brigade confirmed his rescue as complex, as the man was located several hundred metres away from the cave opening. Once freed, the person was taken by helicopter to Brno’s Teaching Hospital. The injuries to his legs were described as serious.
