In this undated handout photo a spelunker explores the Riesending cave near Marktschellenberg, Germany, where an explorer is currently lying injured 3,280 feet below. The man, along with two colleagues, was exploring the Riesending vertical cave, which is over 12 miles long and up to 3,800 feet deep, when he was struck by falling rocks and severely injured. He has been trapped in the crevice since June 8. Specialized rescue workers from Switzerland and Italy arrived at the site to help with the arduous rescue effort, which could take up to several more days or even weeks.
