Cambodian rescued after 4 days wedged in mountain rock

A Cambodian man who became wedged between rocks while collecting bat droppings for sale was rescued Wednesday after being trapped for almost four days.

Police said Sum Bora slipped Sunday while trying to retrieve his flashlight, which he had accidentally dropped in the small rocky hollow.

Bat droppings — guano — are used as fertilizer and sold for supplementary income by poor farmers, who sometimes try to attract bats to their property.
