CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A woman is recovering after a three-and-a half hour rescue from the caverns on Raccoon Mountain.

A worker on the scene tells Channel-3 the woman slipped and fell, and broke her arm. Crews began their search for her around 5:00 p.m. Friday. 


The caverns are very slick and narrow in parts, and the woman was reportedly in the cavern called "Elvis's Room" which is deep in the cave.  

Once the crew got to her, they were able to pull her to safety, she was taken to the hospital for treatment.
