SAN ANTONIO -- A group of boys in San Antonio found what some experts say could be the fifth largest cave in Bexar County.
It all started with a hole they discovered while exploring The Ridge at Lookout Canyon.
“We got bored,” said 11-year-old Ethan.
So, they did what boys do: They poked at it.
Ethan said, “I just stuck my hand in. It was kind of humid, so I took a picture.”
“We stuck our phones in it and found stuff inside it. It was really cool,” said friend Brendon.
The pictures they took with the cell phone started a spelunking adventure and expeditions launched by their fathers, who want to remain anonymous.
“There’s no telling what’s down there,” said one dad. “We just wanted to make sure if they were going down there, nothing was going to happen.”
Through pictures, the cave appears extensive, with stalagmites and stalactites and features that rival some more famous caves in the area.
