Slovakia’s Mountain Rescue Service has confirmed that a Czech speleologist died in Slovakia at the weekend in a cave-in at a recently discovered natural cave near Banská Bystrica. The man lost consciousness when he was buried under debris in the collapse; colleagues attempted artificial resuscitation but the man’s injuries proved too severe. Some twenty members of the Mountain Rescue Service were called to the scene. The site, known as Jeskyni ztraceného prstenu (Cave of the Lost Ring) was found in June.
