  • Description

    Titles read: 'THE LIFESAVERS OF "DOWN UNDER"'.

    Sydney, Australia.

    An ambulance pulls up in a road. Men of the Sydney Ambulance cliff rescue division unload a kind of telescopic tripod crane and set it up on the edge of a cliff, then use it to lower an ambulance man on a perpendicular stretcher down to where an injured man is lying. The worker puts a bandage on the man's head and binds him to the stretcher so the other men can hoist him up and take him to the ambulance.
