This is the second part of a huge 3 day search in winter of 1994 when there were a lot of fatalities in the mountains. In this incident the casualty was located alive after 3 days . It is a great podcast of a Call – out in the Cairngorms that at the time caused huge controversy this is Part 2 and interesting! What it does not state that the RAF MRT issued a Video of the casualty and MOD released it to the Press this helped make this a unique incident and the Media interest was extreme, world wide.

We all learned a huge lot from this Call – out that in my mind changed Mountain Rescue forever. Listen to the Podcast and get a bit of the story.

13/2/94 – 16/2/94 Cairngorms – Derry Cairngorm

36/012958

Missing walker – found after a 3-day search in appalling weather- KMRT videoed the CAS who had mild hypothermia and frostbite. This proved a PR nightmare as the walker sold her story to a tabloid, upsetting most of Mountain Rescue and blaming the Kinloss team for the video. A big learning point in PR.
