Cave rescue in Cave of the Bells in AZ

Even thought there aren't any caves in AZ--to speak of--there was a cave rescue at Cave of the Bells, which is a pretty popular cave there. ... 26c9a.html
This is the second time the fire dept. was called in on rescuing cavers--Called spelunkers. It seems the key to the lock broke in half and they were stuck behind bars. :doh:

Oops! I hate it when that happens. Guess somebody will be repairing that gate now.
