United States university student trapped in cave 'licked walls' to survive

Model and Property Released

The student was trapped inside the cave for about 60 hours

A 19-year-old IN college student contemplated foraging for crickets and licked damp walls for water after getting locked inside a gated cave for almost 60 hours.

He was part of a group dedicated to "spelunking" - the hobby of exploring caves - but became separated from his friends while on a beginners' field trip to a cave south of the university's main campus in Bloomington.

On reaching the cave's gated entrance he found it locked and his cries for help went unheard.

Cavar said he couldn't get a cell phone signal so he screamed for hours.

The Bloomington man, whose parents are Indiana University linguistics professors, tried picking the padlock with a paper clip to no avail.

Two members of the club finally realized Cavar was missing on Tuesday evening, so they headed back to Sullivan Cave, according to reports.

Cavar says he was relieved, and he felt lucky to be alive.

A USA student spent nearly three days trapped inside a cave after he was left behind on a university field trip.

The school's Caving Club told the Daily Student it did a headcount when arriving to and leaving from the cave. "It feels like I've been given a second chance", said Cavar, who returned to classes Thursday and has no plans for another spelunking trip.

"We have a series of rigorous protocols in place that are supposed to prevent situations like this, but they are only effective if followed".

After caving club members rescued him, they returned him to his dorm because he said he was feeling healthy. "We had a failure in our leadership to closely follow all these safety procedures".

Mr Cavar said: "The first thing I wanted to do was eat and drink and put on some warm clothes". Just got rescued about 30 minutes ago. "The risk that our member was exposed to as a result of these failures is a vivid reminder of why we have protocols".

Cavar told FOX59 that it's good to be back above ground, and that he has no plans to go caving any time soon.
