This makes me very upset. I am glad he lived, but ... I mean what kind of cave grotto leaves a person in a veritable TOMB? Get off your phones and start paying attention! The so-called "leader" is a complete fail.

I cannot imagine even leaving them behind but after a few hours, a few DAYS? To still not know?!?

Thank Heavens he was OK.  It's great that he was so responsible that his friends knew he would never skip work and class...

I think the other lesson here is watch who you trust and go with.

Simply horrific.

yep, I was going to post this-seems like everyone involved failed some basic caving protocol.
