West News Wire: The rescue of about 30 members of a film team who were trapped in a limestone cave in northern Malaysia on Wednesday after torrential rain is complete, according to authorities.
All of the trapped individuals were freed from the Tempurung Cave in the Kampar district of Perak state, according to two police officers who talked on the record but insisted on being anonymous since they were not authorized to disclose details. They were unable to provide more specifics.
The people were reportedly stranded when water levels increased following Wednesday’s intense rain and flooded the cave’s outlet, according to Kampar police commander Mohamad Nazri Daud, who was quoted in The Star newspaper. He claimed that the people caught there were members of the film team who were on set for a shot.
