This is certainly up there with the more complex rescue drill we’ve seen. Hamilton County USAR unit conducted a drill where a car was hanging off a ledge, with persons reported trapped inside.
Crews needed to stabilise the vehicle, extricate then package the patient – all while suspended in the air via cordage. Now that is some drill!
