Trapped! Floyd Collins in Pictures

The 1925 Rescue Efforts of Floyd Collins

In Episode 63 of the podcast, “Floyd Collins: Trapped in a Cold Kentucky Cave” we discussed the weeks-long rescue efforts as Floyd Collins lay pinned in a cave, sixty feet below the surface.

We discussed the nation’s fascination with the macabre and wanting to be a part of something in the days before iPhones, internet, television and even radio.

You can listen to Episode 63 now on all major podcast streaming services. To go along with the podcast I’ve collected photos and articles from the nearly 16 days that Kentucky residents worked to get Floyd Collins out of Sand Cave.
