    [quote:33myphfw]Missing couple rescued by police – Labertouche
    Mon 30 July 2007

    A 28-year-old man from Endeavour Hills and a 31 year old woman were extricated by a Neerim South policeman about an hour and a half after they were reported overdue.

    The couple had been exploring the caves at Labertouche about 2.00pm yesterday when they found themselves unable to get out of a 20 foot deep hole.

    The man’s father alerted police shortly after 1.00am when he became concerned that the couple had not returned on time.

    Police arrived at the caves around 2.00am and discovered their car in the car park but no sign of the man or woman.

    The policeman entered the caves and located them very quickly, they were very cold but basically unharmed.

    After some assistance from the policeman, the man and woman were on their way home.

    20 foot? I thought Australia went metric 30 years ago.

    It could have been the downstream entrance, or the tricky climb about 1/3 way up through the cave from that entrance.
