Rescuers Work to Free Pinned Caver

Nation IN BRIEF / NEW YORK

July 20, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

Rescuers were trying to free a Massachusetts man who had been pinned for more than a day in a cave's narrow crevice about 150 feet below ground. Authorities said it could take until the morning before rescuers could completely remove Craig Douglas, 24, of Medford, from the cave. Douglas had been caving since Friday and was passing through a hole 10 inches wide and 18 inches high in Keyhole Cave near Albany when he fell into a small slot, trapping his right thigh between a rock and the cave floor.
