College students in cave emerge safe and sound

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A group of college students who didn't emerge for more than a day from a cave they were exploring have been found safe, an emergency worker said Sunday.

The two women and one man were found in a 500-foot-long crawl space about the width of a sewer pipe, said Frank Urias, division commander of Austin-Travis County emergency medical services.

"The victims are uninjured, our crews are safe; it doesn't get any better than this," Urias said.
