Authorities have rescued an 18-year-old who had fallen while exploring Stephens Gap Cave.

Officials say Jordan Garren of the nearby Limrock community was exploring the vertical cave Sunday afternoon with some friends when he fell.

Scottsboro-Jackson County Rescue Squad spokesman Eddie Teague says the squad removed Garren with a rope and basket. The man had a possible broken leg and a cut to the forehead.

Teague says Garren was flown to Huntsville Hospital. Officials say his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
