Swede battles for life after potholing accident in France
A Swedish potholer was battling for his life Monday after an accident in a cave in southwestern France, emergency services said.
The unnamed man was part of a group of experienced potholers exploring a cave near the village of Cadrieu when a sudden flow of water swept him away.
He was later transported to a hospital in the nearby town of Cahors where officials said he was in a critical condition.
