BEDINGTON, W.Va. - A woman spelunker fell about 40 feet inside a cave in the Whiting's Neck area early Sunday morning, according a fire official.
The woman was about 250 feet from the entrance of the cave when she slipped and fell, said Capt. David Brining of the Martinsburg Fire Department, which responded to the call along with other volunteer firefighters.
Firefighters had to crawl through tight passages in the cave to reach the woman, Brining said. Rescue workers then had to use ropes and a body harness to bring her from the cave, Brining said.
