Monsoon season has started early in Thailand this year and that proved dangerous for a Buddhist monk who went into a cave to meditate over the weekend.

Rescue workers said on Wednesday they had freed the monk trapped inside a flooded cave in Thailand’s Phitsanulok province.

The monk, identified by a local rescue unit as 46-year-old Phra Ajarn Manas, was on a pilgrimage from another province and had gone into the Phra Sai Ngam cave in Phitsanulok on Saturday.

An unseasonal rainstorm that struck on Sunday and continued through Tuesday flooded parts of the cave while he was inside, the local rescue unit said on its Facebook page.

Ross Hull has the story on his dramatic rescue.
