 Polish rescue service finds body of trapped caver

WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish rescuers have found the body of one of two cavers trapped in a cavern in Poland's Tatra mountains since Saturday, mountain rescue service TOPR said late on Thursday.

"The first of the cavers has been found in the cave, he is dead. More information will be available tomorrow," TOPR said.

The two became trapped in the Wielka Sniezna cave, the longest and deepest in the Tatra mountains, on Saturday and rescue services were notified by colleagues who had accompanied them on the excursion.
