5 people trapped in Virginia cave; rescue underway | Fox News

Rescuers are searching for five men who have been trapped inside a Virginia cave since Saturday night.

Rescuers searching for five men who have been trapped inside a Virginia cave since Saturday night are settling in for what could be a long operation to bring them out safely.

“With cave rescue incidents, this has the chance to extend to eight to 12 hours,” Virginia Department Search and Rescue Coordinator Billy Grimes told WJHL.

The trapped men, ranging in age from 35 to 59, are believed to be uninjured inside Cyclops Cave, according to Russell County Emergency Management.

Although the cave in southwestern Virginia has more than seven miles of passages in it, some of which are quite narrow, authorities believe the men are not in the cave’s farthest reaches.

“The vaccinations are so important,” he told reporters outside the White House.

Nearly 700 cases have been reported across 22 states amid a resurgence of the highly infectious disease, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says.

Rare, 400-Year-Old Bible Stolen From US Library Found and Returned – Sputnik International

A Geneva Bible dating to 1615 that was stolen from a Pennsylvania library has been found in the Netherlands and returned to the US, authorities announced at a Thursday news conference.

The Bible, which has survived more than four centuries, was one of more than 300 items allegedly stolen from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh as part of a 20-year scheme by a former archivist Gregory Priore, 62, and rare books dealer John Schulman, 54, local outlet KDKA reports, both of whom had long worked closely with the library. They have been charged with theft, conspiracy and forgery, among other counts.

Investigators traced the tome to the American Pilgrim Museum in Leiden, which had paid about $1,200 for it. Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala explained that the director of the Leiden museum realized the Bible it had purchased belonged to the Carnegie Library and reached out to the institution. He’s “an honest man,” Zappala said, according to KDKA.

Chicken is often the culprit in U.S. food poisoning cases, according to CDC report

The CDC says that the increases could be the result of new diagnostic tools that help identify more cases.

As recent illnesses tied to raw turkeyground beefcut melon and romaine lettuce suggest, U.S. food poisoning cases don’t appear to be going away anytime soon.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report Thursday that the frequency of several types of food poisoning infections climbed last year, but that the increases could be the result of new diagnostic tools that help identify more cases.

Overall, the agency believes food poisoning rates have remained largely unchanged
