Imagine an accident in the most-visited cave of Pangasinan, the Cacupangan Cave System in Brgy. Tagudin, Mabini.
Here's what could happen... A group of spelunkers do a self-guided tour into the cave with only two flashlights, wearing slippers, and without protective gear like helmets or gloves. About 400 meters into the cave, one of the guys shows off by free-climbing a 2-meter high ledge, slips, falls, and hits his head on a rock in the stream, rendering him unconscious. During the fall, his flashlight lands into the water and no longer works. Half of the group tries to exit using their cellphones to light their way back while the others stay with the victim using the remaining flashlight. They hope their cellphones and flashlight will have enough battery charge to last while waiting for a rescue team to arrive.
