November 19, 2011 / Italy, Europe

Videos of the recent rescue of Italian caver, Anna Bonini, have been placed online by the Corpo Nazionale Soccorso Alpino e Speleologico (CNSAS), the organization that responded to the accident.

The incident occurred this past Sunday while on an exploration trip in the cave L’Omber en banda al Bus del Zel, located near Serle in the northern Italian province of Brescia . The 36-year-old caver suffered a fractured tibia and fibula while navigating a 3 meter (10 foot) drop.

The five short videos offer a glimpse into the rescue which lasted more than 35 hours, of which 25 hours were spent transporting the injured patient out of the cave on a stretcher.
