Oxford cavers call out spanish rescue team

Students from Oxford University Cave Club were rescued in northern Spain last week after spending a night trapped underground.

The group of four students was cut off due to a flooding in the Picos de Europa mountain range.

Fortunately, the hikers had stocked up on emergency supplies and were able to keep warm. The club chairman, Paul Savage, confirmed that no members of the group were hurt. He added, “At no time were they in any danger, they were just unlucky I guess, but it makes the club look a bit silly doesn’t it.”

Two members of the same trip were also rescued earlier on 26 July after letting go of their rope.
