George Baird, Captain from HM Coastguard Inverness helicopter said “This job was challenging due to the steep ground and narrow gully that the casualty was in. The MRT did a great job of securing the scene and assisting the winchman to stabilise the casualty. They also played a key role in helping with the winching operation that made a very tricky job a lot more straight forward."
