BERCHTESGADEN, GERMANY - JUNE 11: General view of the Untersberg peak, near an underground cave where an explorer is lying injured 1,000 meters below on June 11, 2014 near Marktschellenberg, Germany. The man, along with two colleagues, was exploring the Riesending vertical cave, which is over 20km long and up to 1,148 meters deep, when he was struck by rocks and severely injured.
