That video was the easy one. The second one where  Andy went for a second helping was way worse and the third rescue with the other guy who went over the slide, as I caught him with the throw rope, was pulled down (anchored) by Sindy was truly epic and it's too bad it wasn't filmed...

Yeah... I agree with Christian.. From what I see....That was merely a pin...seems as though everything was hyped up for the NRS Video. ..Good Job though!!

Hmmm... I was there that day. Let's say that there are a few inaccuracies in the video. Perhaps one should say that the narrative was taylored to present a message--which is a good thing: scouting is always a good idea and so is rescue training--but actual facts were perhaps not entirely as depicted in the video...
