A man was injured while caving in Brecon Beacons. He was rescued by rescuers and clapped and cheered. He is currently being assessed and we will know more soon. The rescue effort involved approximately 250 people. Peter Francis, one of the rescuers, said that the man was an “experienced, fit caver” who had “put his foot in the wrong spot”. He added: “It is just something that was moved from under him. The longest cave rescue in Wales was done because of the wet and foggy conditions in the Brecon Beacons.
The longest rescue took 41 hours and took 53 hours. According to Natural Resources Wales, the caves were discovered in 1946 by the South Wales Caving Club. They contain many underground streams and waterfalls. The cave has many routes that are too numerous to list. It adds that there are many routes through the cave. “Be aware that the main and other parts of the cave can flood. In any event, a journey down to the mainline is long, cold, and wet.
