The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Cave/Cliff team is in Walker County trying to rescue a 22-year-old in Ellison’s Cave on Pigeon Mountain.

According to Tipton, the man is alone at the bottom of Fantastic Pit inside the cave. His caving partner left the cave to go for help when the man was unable to exit on his own, reportedly due to an illness.
