Hello everyone, I am the lady who you rescued on Sunday 23rd August at Seacombe Quarry. My name is Cheryl Ince and I want to thank you so much for being so helpful and for making what could have been a very distressing time so much easier with your patience and professional approach. As you know I broke my right ankle in 3 places. Your giving of the correct painkillers to make me comfortable and to also be transported via stretcher up to the helicopter and coordinating with the volunteers to lift me from the quarry up the steep hillside for transport to the Dorset County Hospital.
Your professionalism also assisted my son and daughter, whom I was with at the time, to know that I was in very good and capable hands.
The gentleman with long hair who rode with me in the helicopter (I'm so sorry I've forgotten your name) held my hand until we landed to give me reassurance during the flight.
I cannot praise you guys enough and I am now back at home in London recuperating after my operation - it could all have been so much worse, you saved me and you have helped me tremendously.
You are worth your weight in gold.
Very best wishes from me and my family to REAL LIFE SAVERS.
