This rescue is in northwest PERU and has been going on for over a week now. A Spanish cave( resuer)r fell 5m at a depth of 400m several km into the cave he was exploring on a multinational expedition and has a spinal injury. There being very few Peruvian cavers to help, Spanish cavers have been going out to help voluntarily in increasing numbers...
