From Facebook:

Big wall rescue for BASE jumper 2020.02.14+15

Rescue 37 of 2020 for the Western Cape teams.

A foreigner was critically injured after striking a cliff while BASE jumping in Du Toitskloof near Cape Town.

A small WSAR team of 3 (2 medics and a climber) were deployed with the AMS (Western Cape Government Department of Heath) helicopter just before dark on the 14th. They abseiled 170m to the patient, where a Metro ALS Paramedic stabilised the patient overnight on the cliff face.

At first light on the 15th 21 members of MCSA Mountain Rescue team assembled as part of a greater WSAR team.

A South African Air Force (SAAF) Oryx helicopter inserted a MCSA Technical Rescue Climbing team, who assisted in retrieving the patient, the gear as well as the rest of the team on the cliff face.

After extraction the patient was treated at the LZ by doctors and paramedics then flown by AMS Air Ambulance to Cape Town for further urgent treatment.

On behalf of the MCSA and patient we would like to extend our gratitude to the SAAF.

We wish him a speedy recovery.

They generally don't charge for chopper extractions.

We had two visitors from Belgium who went hiking in the Berg and got lost. They managed to contact their B&B with what remained of their cellphone battery and were evacuated off the mountain the next afternoon after spending the night in the open.

They were astonished not to be hit with a large bill.

Meanwhile my sister got hit with a $800 bill for an ambulance ride in the USA.

Bargain! I saw a pissed-up bird in Las Vegas get carted off in an ambulance and she got a bill for $2k on being discharged from hospital.

I think that was just the copay. They have pretty good insurance by American standards and were still hit with that bill.

Assuming she was beyond the point of legally being able to enter into contract, I've always been surprised that you can't refuse to pay.

Opens up a whole other can of worms, of course.

MCSA Mountain Rescue, like NSRI and Air Sea Rescue, is a volunteer service and they work with the Air Force when choppers are needed. They hope that the people rescued will make donations

I got concussed in a 7's tournament in Long Beach. I had insurance, but the ambulance company that was covering the tournament wasn't part of my network. So I got a bill for $5k.

"Fortunately", the overnight stay and follow-up treatment for my concussion meant I went over my annual out-of-pocket-maximum (which, in those pre-Obamacare days, not every insurance policy actually had), so I was able to persuade my insurance company that they needed to cover the cost of the ambulance ride. Which they initially refuse to do because the ambulance was out of network.

More a video but if you look closely at this you can see the road has been cleared? Who does that up that high?

Can't remember the detail, but it involved Dozy being attacked by some yobs with a hammer. Or was it Dozy doing the attacking?

I found out this week that if the ambulance comes adn they can treat you in the back without going to hospital it's free. But I agree, the US healthcare system is mad!!!

You must have been on the bored for that?

Dozy made one of his spurious claims about having been attacked with a hammer in Balham, warning everyone that it's like downtown Baghdad. London Pride took exception to this and proceeded to take the claim apart, even providing a link to a police site which has all violent crime in London, asking Dozy to show which one was his incident. Dozy had an epic meltdown that lasted for weeks.

Happier times.

His username was Doesabearshitinthewoods, but that was shortened to 'Dozy', which seemed a little more apt.

We had some good ones in our yearbook ... if you got wind of someone who 'didn't care' to submit a quote, you'd grab a sheet and submit a gag line/embarrassing story/etc with their name on it.
