Must've been the worst feeling in the world, strapped in with no
control. Are one's arms even free in those things?

It came to a halt 10 feet from the edge of a precipice. The rescue bods

well, we're not going to get that one back."

Well, quite. Hundreds of Euros' worth of kit.

Seriously though, very glad it didn't end in disaster.
