I for one was glad to not have to do the carry-out. Would have been the second night-time carry-out in three days. One other SES and at least one paramedic had also been at the Arapiles accident. And spare a thought for the Stawell SES : they had already been to a patient at the Pinnacle earlier on Saturday, then to Stapylton in the evening. They then got woken up for a truck crash about 3am on Sunday followed by the Venus Baths fall later on Sunday. That's a heavy weekend for a small group of volunteers.
