He is 1,000 metres deep. His friend climbs out of the cave. It takes him twelve hours. When he is out, he calls for help.

A special team comes. The people in the team go into the cave. They help the man. They want to take him out. It is not easy. It is dangerous inside the cave. It can take days to get out.
