A genuine hero. I have always admired his courage just for being there in the first place. SAR professionals are usually out there when many of us are home or in a nice safe place. I am glad that the media have honoured Billy by remembering he gave his life to save others.

Hear hear.

Also glad to see lessons were learned and adjustments made to SAR equipment: dual winch, two way coms, etc

But the end of the winch wire is still the most hazardous place to work in a SAR crew. All winchmen/women have my greatest respect.
