Indiana Conservation Officers, along with National Cave Rescue Commission (NCRC) trained personnel are actively coordinating a search and rescue of 7 overdue cavers in Binkley’s Cave near Corydon.
A group of seven experienced cavers were conducting a survey of the cave and failed to exit the cave early Sunday morning as expected.
The group was expected to exit after a 15 hour trip. High water levels in the cave have hampered search efforts in the area of the cave where the group was to be surveying.
Assisting agencies include Harrison County Emergency Management, O’Bannon Woods State Park personnel, Harrison County EMS, Harrison Township Fire Department, and American Red Cross.
National Cave Rescue Commission (NCRC) trained personnel, National Speleological Society, (NSS), and other volunteer cavers and grotto members are participating in the recovery effort.
