INCIDENT 69/2019 – Aug 10th. Sat 13.55hrs – Flood Entrance, Gaping Gill, Clapham. North Yorkshire – Cave Rescue

A caver (m, 20) was reported by Craven Pothole Club (operating the GG winch) to be hung up on the rope in SE Pot.  He had gone too low on a re-belay and had been unable to return. However, he was rescued by CPC members, escorted to the Main Chamber and winched up to the surface, before CRO members arrived.  He was slightly hypothermic, so was sheltered and given warm drinks.  CRO members assessed him, then re-assessed him a while later, before being declared recovered.
