  1. > “August 2021 – “Perovo” expedition found a body of a tourist at -1100 m. He was later identified as Sergei Kozeev who left his home in Sochi (Russia) on 1 November and began descent into Veryovkina, where he spent around a week in -600 m permanent camp. Then he continued descent down to technically challenging parts at -1100 m where he was stuck due to inadequate equipment and skills, and died of hypothermia.[[11]](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veryovkina_Cave#cite_note-11) The body was eventually recovered after a complex rescue operation on 17 August 2021.[[12]](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veryovkina_Cave#cite_note-12)

  2. Kozeev’s body was found dangling from a rope about 1,100 meters into the enormous, 1.3 mile deep and frigid cave.

    Some think a fall killed him, others think it may have been hypothermia.

    Imagine dangling from a rope alone in the blackness, 1,000 meters underground within a huge, deep cave until you freeze to death.
