(ANSA) – NUORO, 14 JUN – At 5.20 this morning and after almost two days of work, the recovery of the 30-year-old speleologist from Cagliari who had injured himself on Sunday afternoon inside the S’Edera cave in Urzulei, in Ogliastra, was concluded , 180 meters deep.
Awaiting him is the helicopter of the helicopter rescue base in Olbia with the medical team for transport to the Brotzu hospital in Cagliari.
The man was in good condition, but with one limb immobilized due to a fracture. He had entered the cavity on Sunday morning, together with a group of speleologists, but he had slipped causing a fracture in his leg, a problem that no longer allowed him to continue.
The rescue operation carried out by the National Corps of Alpine and Speleological Rescue was particularly difficult and involved 90 technicians with various specializations: the speleologist was at a depth of 180 meters and 500 meters from the entrance, in the area of the cave called Well of the Great Muffler. To allow the passage of the stretcher, the speleological rescue technicians specialized in unblocking were alerted with the aid of microcharges: they arrived from Lombardy, Piedmont, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Campania, Lazio and Umbria, thanks to the collaboration of the Cnsas with the Italian Air Force, which provided a helicopter that took off from Pratica di Mare.
Shortly after the alarm raised by his colleagues, he was reached by the technicians and health workers of the Cnsas who stabilized him and kept him in a hot spot inside a tent to allow him to face the long hours necessary for the operations of recovery.
The intervention was carried out in collaboration with the staff of the Fire Brigade, the Carabinieri of the Lanusei Station and Areus staff. (HANDLE).
