Paramedics took part in a six-hour rescue operation in a cave in Moravský kras on Saturday evening to save a speleologist who was injured at the bottom of the cave. The man, who explored the cave with a team of colleagues, bruised his ankle some 25 metres under ground. The rescuers had to widen one the cave's tunnel to be able to bring the man out and then they had to carry him through difficult and snowy terrain to a site accessible by ambulance.
