The weather 15) was started to get worse and the mist reduced visibility to about 20 meters. We were about half way back to the camp when I 16) hear a sudden cry from behind me. I 17) run back and I found Cpl Smith lying 30 feet down the slope. I and LCpl Parker carefully descended the slope. Cpl Smith was in a lot of pain. I had training in first aid and it was clear that his leg was broken. It was starting to rain and fog was starting to descend quickly. I gave him first aid, we made a makeshift stretcher and took him back to the base.
It 18) was concluded that it was an unfortunate accident due to bad weather conditions. Nevertheless, my soldiers 19) should practiced more and 20) must to master first aid to be better prepared to emergency situations like that. Secondly, it is indispensable to have a direct contact with the base to call CSAR in case of emergency.
