Be careful out there!
Standing duty tonight at the VFD, got called out to assist lifting a patient. Wound up assisting in the rescue of a bow hunter who shot a deer and proceeded to slip on the first step coming out of the tree. He was 35 feet up in the tree adding in the lay of the land makes for a total fall somewhere between fifty and sixty feet. Remember, three points of contact and take your time. It's not the fall but that sudden stop that is the problem!
