A group of university students who did not emerge for more than a day from a cave they were exploring have been found safe, an emergency worker said Sunday. The three University of Texas students had gone into a narrow passage near Austin called Airman's Cave on Saturday morning and told friends to call for help if they were not back by midnight, officials said. "The victims are uninjured, our crews are safe; it doesn't get any better than this," said Frank Urias, division commander of Austin-Travis County emergency medical services.
