The full team were paged to assist our coleagues at Portland Bill Coastguard Rescue Team. The tasking was to a climber who had taken a serious fall at The Cuttings on the East side of the Island. Paramedics, The Devon Air Ambulance and Police were on scene. The casualty had fallen 50-55ft from the lower off bolts straight to the ground. He was stabilised by Doctors before being stretchered a short distance to the air ambulance. They managed to land very close to the scene after some impressive flying. He was flown directly to Southampton Hospital. The teams remained on scene until all equipment was removed from the cliff.
