A day out with her fellow senior ramblers turned to terror for 73-year-old Jeannette when she tumbled into a rock strewn gully in an inaccessible wooded part of her favourite cliff walk.
As friends scrambled down to help her, others summoned help and Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance touched down minutes later in a nearby field. Paramedics negotiated the steep slopes and lowered themselves into the gully to treat Jeannette who had broken both wrists and sustained a serious head injury.
When police arrived they helped hoist the stretcher out of the gully and up through the wood to the waiting helicopter. Jeannette was at hospital within minutes - safely airlifted from a remote coastal setting.
"The SCAA paramedics were brilliant," said a recovering Jeannette. " I don't know how on earth they got to me with all their kit and then rescued me out of that gully. It's a marvellous charity. I don’t know what would have happened to me without them."
