Fleming freed for hours was in the 75-meter-deep cave
The Flemish people who, yesterday afternoon, in the Walloon Yvoir in a cave had fallen, and at a depth of about 75 meters was liberated. The man was around a quarter to a night out of the cave worn and is for care transferred to the hospital of Saint-Godinne. That confirms Benoît Lebeau, the chairman of reddingsorganisatie Spéléo-Secours, to news agency Belga.

The 63-year-old man is a relatively experienced caver. He was at the time of the accident in the ‘Trou Bernard, 140 meters, one of the deepest caves of our country.

The man slipped, fell fifteen meters down and was at about 75 meters depth. He would during his fall, different fractions have suffered at the basin, but would not be in danger of exclusion. Still, speed was offered in the rescue because of the danger of hypothermia due to the low temperature and the moisture in the cave. A doctor-caver hit earlier in the day to be with the man and served him the first.

Twenty cavers called

Next to police and fire brigade were some twenty cavers called to the rescue in the right direction. They made sure that the hole widened, so the victim with a stretcher to the top could be.

Brandweerkapitein Gilles Boonen predicted yesterday that this is definitely not for 1 hour last night would happen and it turned out he was right: the 63-year-old Fleming was around a quarter to one at night only to outside worn.
