Cave tours for injured children from five special institutions took place for 6 weeks from Halloween to Santa Claus, organized by the Verocs Movement and Experience Therapy Department and with the participation of the Hungarian Cave Rescue Service.
About the background: In the summer of 2017, thanks to the support of many enthusiastic internet voters, we became the winners of the DM-Together for Each other competition, so our "Be a Cave Rescuer" program could be executed.
Thanks to the support, the children were able to get acquainted with the cave rescue stretcher and our rescue equipment. The most popular equipment was the rescue triangle: the ladder climbing was substituted with vertical movement with the help of the rescue triangle- This was received with a wide smile.
We made a bold decision and chose a very important and essential way to provide help. Because it is well known that blood is always needed, as a rescue team, we almost feel obligated to donate blood. We hereby ask you to stand by us and help.

On October 4, 2017, at 16:45, the Hungarian Cave Rescue Service received an alert that a young man had suffered a knee injury in the Mátyás-hegyi cave (part of the Pál-völgyi cave system) in Budapest - the same cave where an accident had also occurred five days ago.
We immediately issued the alarm and then began marching to the scene with medical and rescue equipment.
The site of the accident is one of the very narrow passages of the cave, the so-called "Sandwich" squeeze.
Here, a member of a hiking group, David S. (a 22-year-old American citizen) sprained his knee while he crawled on all fours through the narrowest section. His injury was very painful, so he was unable to continue the tour.
On the evening of September 29, 2017, a group of cavers hiked in the Mátyás-hegyi Cave, which is part of the longest cave in the country, the Pálvölgyi Cave System in Budapest. Nearly half an hour's way from the entrance, (about 500 meters), in the middle section of the deep zone, between Nagytravi and Opera-Nagytravi they climbed down a narrow chimney, where they secured each other during the climb so that no one could fall.
At the end of the chimney, at about one and half meter from the bottom, a young lady was clinging to an upper catch and suffered a shoulder strain.
The tour guide - who is a trained cave tour and research leader - took action to alert the cave rescue service.
2017. szeptember 23-án este háromnegyed hétkor kérte a segítségünket az Állatmentő szolgálat, mert Biatorbágyon egy 35 méter mély kútba beesett egy cica. A gazdik a tűzoltóság segítségét kérték, akik az állatmentő szolgálatnak a továbbították a riasztást. Az állatmentők a kötéltechnika szükségessége miatt kérték a BMSz segítségét.
Amit megtudtunk, hogy a helyszínen a kútból a szivattyút húzták ki, emiatt rövid ideig a kút nem volt lefedve, így a háziak kiscicája beleesett, és panaszosan nyávogott. A 35 méteres mélység kb. tíz emelet szintkülönbségnek felel meg, szegény állat ennyit zuhant a kútba.
A helyszínen lévők próbáltak kosarat, deszkákat leereszteni, hogy ki tudjon a vízből valamire mászni a cica mielőtt teljesen kifárad és kihűl a hideg vízben.
