It took police about six hours to rescue a teenage Florida girl who was trapped after falling "a considerable distance" in a Dorset cave.

Vermont State Police say the victim had been exploring the cave with a cave-exploring camp from New Hampshire.

Police did not release the victim’s name or provide her exact age.

But police say the girl fell into a narrow area at about 7 p.m. Monday in what is known as the False Cliff Cave near the Dorset-Danby town line.

As part of the rescue effort, officials had to divert a stream flowing into the cave.

Police didn’t have the condition of the victim, but say she was stable and alert when brought out of the cave at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.
