    Cool. I'm gonna have to forward that story on to some of our rescue guys.

    I personally haven't had my tech rescue training yet, but I have heard of using a setup like this but had never actually seen it done until now.

    We use a modified ladder gin fairly frequently for swift water rescue. I say modified because we don't use it for a high point we lower it to a horizontal postion and use it like a drawbridge to reach a stable victim stuck on a log or rock.
