It seems like someone was going to have to die before this cave was closed. I'm sure he won't be the last to die in a cave, but when a cave is restricted to those people who have experience, and that experience hasn't taught them what they need to survive, then experience isn't enough. The people who managed this cave failed in their responsibility to insure everyone entering had the knowledge to make it a safe and enjoyable experience. The passage which trapped someone else before John should have been plugged.
