Battambang Province Authority Police Photo via Associated Press.

Sum Bora, a Cambodian man, was trapped wedged in between rocks for four days before 200 rescue workers freed him in an effort that lasted ten hours. Sum Bora slipped while trying to retrieve his flashlight, which had fallen into a rock crevasse.

Sum Bora had been climbing in a mountainous jungle in an attempt to find guano, bat droppings which are sold as valuable fertilizer. When he didn’t return for three days, Sum Bora’s family became worried and his brother started searching. Eventually Sum Bora’s brother found him and alerted authorities.
