Big story coming out of Kentucky on being trapped

Postby Ernie Coffman » May 26, 2016 5:57 pm

A whole flock of Clemson students found out what happens in a cave when inclement weather brings in a whole slug of rain. This is the first story, but I'm sure there will be many more comments to this. Fortunately, all of the students and rescuers, including law enforcement officers were safe. Apparently over a hundred rescuers were involved in this matter.

They all got out, safely, under their own power.

Here's a follow-up story, with David Foster explaining what he's going to do for safety, along with suggestions from Bonny Armstrong, in Horsethief Cave that had an incident yesterday.
