RAF Valley Sea King in Caernarfon Castle Rescue


A woman slipped and become injured in a spiral staircase in one of the towers at Caernarfon Castle. It was determined to be too dangerous to take her back down for a transfer to hospital by ground ambulance, so a Sea King from RAF Valley was called on to winch her from the battlements. The pilot’s skill was praised as the helicopter had to hold a hover in windy conditions.
