Today our Swiftwater team was out training in the River Tavy under and around Denham Bridge.
In the first of a couple of photos, the team is doing a bank search looking for a boy (TRAINING) who jumped off the bridge. On the second group of photos, the team is coming to the aid to a man who is working on the bridge but is seen hanging (TRAINING) who has been unconscious for some time with a suspension trauma.
The Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth is a fully voluntary organisation which responds to those in need on Dartmoor and the surrounding area. The Team is on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and relies entirely on donations from members of the public to carry out this essential life-saving rescue service.
