Whilst on a cliff exercise the Aberdeen Coastguard Rescue team were tasked to a cliff faller
at Earnsheugh Bay North of Findon. The climber fell approx. 15 feet onto rocks then down a steep slope
before stopping short of another drop. Aberdeen lifeboat & I.L.B. were tasked to attended as a backup as
the casualty may have been lowered & evacuated by sea to Aberdeen. A cliff man was lowered to provide
first aid & the casualty appeared to have a fractured ankle but due to his location & possible spinal injuries
a helicopter was requested to air lift him from the slope to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
