A COUPLE exploring caves in Victoria’s west Gippsland area have been rescued from a six-metre-deep hole.
A man, 28, from Endeavour Hills and a woman, 31, were exploring the caves at Labertouche about 2pm (AEST) yesterday when they found themselves unable to get out of a six-metre deep hole.
The man’s father alerted police shortly after 1am (AEST) when he became concerned the couple had not returned on time, Victoria Police spokesman Senior Constable David Fitzgerald said.
A policeman from Neerim South arrived at the caves about 2am (AEST), finding their car but no sign of the couple.
He entered the caves, found them quickly and rescued them.
The couple were very cold, but unharmed.
Labertouche is a boulder cave where many Victorians get their first experience at caving. The crawl is marked with reflective markers (and an old route with white arrows). From memory this was my first cave with the Latrobe Mountaineering Club.
There is little information available about the Labertouche caves on the net, and due to incidents such as the one above it should probably stay that way.
