Watching the State Emergency Services teams swing into action for a rescue is an awe-inspiring experience.  Here the team sets up the tripod in preparation for the abseiling to commence. From the top of Knox Gorge they go down to where Nick is lying, strap him into a capsule and take him further to the bottom of the gorge. Then the capsule is carried hand over hand to a safe base, before the SES rescuer takes the capsule up the rope to the top of the gorge, where a Royal Flying Doctor aircraft is waiting. Meanwhile, night is falling.
