Dramatic Dartmoor rescue featured on Nick Knowles Close Calls on Camera

Ann was walking with her friends in the Dart Valley below Dartmeet when she slipped 30 feet on to rocks.

The dramatic story of Ann's accident was featured on the current series of BBC1's 'Close Calls on Camera'. The series uses footage from dramatic events caught on camera, interviews those involved and tells the casualty's story from before, during and after the incident. 

Ann spent 3 days in Intensive Care after being airlifted to hospital, followed by a lengthy recovery process to get her back on her feet. We are very pleased to report that Ann is actively walking the moors once again with her friends who were with her on the fateful summer's day.

You can watch the Close Calls on Camera story that featured on the BBC show below.

 Accidents can happen to anybody at any time. Mountain Rescue teams across the country are all volunteers and will drop anything anytime day or night to help someone in need.
