Unfortunately this trip turned out to be quite eventful. I was taking a speleo group and the fun started at double pot where the scout leader on the trip while climbing down the second pot slipped and fell awkwardly. Once helped out the pot his ankle was quite swollen and he decided to sit and rest it while I took the others to sump 1. On our return his ankle had not improved so fun was had helping him climb back up double pot but fortunately we met up with some WCC members who helped me get Chris out the cave. Back on the surface he was taken to hospital where it was confirmed he had a triple break in his ankle.
