Excellent find.

Couple things.
The victim kept it together pretty well for a guy with rib fx and a pneumo, in addition to the lower extremity injury (at least as stated in the comments).  The radio chatter did say he was in and out a bit, so maybe it wasn't stoic but rather altered mentation?
Did you catch the huge crack in the helmet? - whoa.
Did you catch the 'eh?'s' - total hosers!

(Did you catch the knots in their dyneema slings?  They're totally gonna die...eh?)

Nice to see how the pros do it, but still hope you're not the guy in the sling.

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.
