Winching Down by EarthHart Winching Down by EarthHart
I was in the grounds of the Bishop's Palace, when I heard sirens all over the place, then later saw the Air Ambulance fly over & land on Cathedral Green, so I strolled over to see what the shout was about.

At around 12 noon today, a tourist on the High Places tour in the Cathedral, fell some 30ft & became trapped in a 'void' in a wall. A specialist Doctor abseiled down to her, and stabilized her. Then came the problem of getting her out. The only way was to call in the RAF SAR Sea King helicopter, and winch her off the Main Tower. The lady has no life threatening injuries, and was flown to a hospital in Bristol, where she's being treated for broken wrists & a suspect pelvis fracture. The whole operation took some three hours.

I did a 9 month detachment as a paramedic/winchman, with 22 Squadron, at RAF Valley, back in the late '60s.
