Response to June 2003 Accidents/Rescues


A Michigan man drowned in a northeastern Kentucky cave when heavy rains caused an underground stream to flood.
The victim was identified as Allen Booth, 22, of Ypsilanti. He was found about 150 feet inside a small cave at Horn Hollow.
The three males went into the cave about 4 p.m. Monday. The cave is on the border of state and private land. Haney said it was still unclear weather the cave was on state park property.
Because of bad weather, Carter Caves State Park officials had warned tourists to stay clear of all 25 caves on the grounds and had stopped giving permits to tour the caves at 1 p.m.
