Updated 8:54am Monday 3rd June 2013 in News
FIREFIGHTERS rescued a young woman hunting for a geo cache capsule from a tree in Poole on Saturday afternoon.
The 20-year-old climbed the tree in the Parkstone Heights area while geocaching, an popular international game where participants track down hidden caches using GPS and smartphone clues, at around 12pm.
Crews from Westbourne and Poole, including the technical rescue unit, used a 13.5m ladder to get the woman to the ground. She was unharmed, but shaken by the ordeal.
In a Tweet, Dorset Fire Control said: “Lady rescued from tree in Poole attempting to reach Geo Cache capsule – ensure you assess the risks before climbing!”
