June 22, 2007, Newsletter Issue #70: Avoiding Injury When Caving

Tip of the Week

While caving underground, be very cautious in the way you move to avoid injury. When an accident happens on a caving trip a quick response may be necessary to keep an injury from becoming a fatality.

Extracting an injured person from deep within a cave can be strenuous and technically difficult, often requiring large numbers of people and specialized caving gear, and may take a day or more.
