Alex Cole had a near miss in The Alps at the weekend. Alex, on a leisurely outing to the mountains with the PolyPhotonix Mountaineering Club (PPXMC), ended up with a dislocated shoulder and an exciting helicopter rescue. Alex says “I got a fantastic view from the helicopter and I didn’t have to walk down with the others!”. After a trip to the hospital, Alex is now recovering well and is already back at work.
