Dive centre staff assist injured climber in North Wales

-

Staff from Vivian Dive Centre in Llanberis, North Wales, rushed to the aid of a badly injured climber who fell more than 80 feet while scaling a slate cliff face on the shoreline of the popular inland dive site.

Freshly minted PADI Course Director Clare Dutton and PADI OWSI William Tew sprang into action and scrambled across rocks to administer oxygen, first aid and offer some comfort to the climber, who suffered pelvis and head injuries in the fall, while they waited for the arrival of the emergency services.

The Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team, and other members of staff from within the park, soon arrived to assist the stricken climber, and after being administered pain relief, he was loaded on to a stretcher and carefully lowered to the edge of the water, where an inflatable raft was used to transport him across the flooded quarry to the entrance/exit archway, where he was then transferred to the Wales Air Ambulance and taken to hospital.
