Injured man rescued from Weybridge cave

WEYBRIDGE — Local and statewide rescue organizations rescued an injured man from a Weybridge cave early Wednesday morning after a 12-hour operation that required widening several rock openings with air chisels.
The 26-year-old man had hurt himself after falling down a 12-foot vertical drop, striking his head in the process. A companion caver called authorities for help at around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The rescue effort involved volunteers from the Weybridge Fire Department, Middlebury Technical Rescue, Middlebury Heavy Rescue, the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association and the Vermont Cavers Association.
Look for a full account of the rescue in Thursday’s edition of the Addison Independent.
