About the Nottawasaga Bluffs Rescue
An experienced outdoorsman climbed a 40-foot rock crevice on his hike through the Nottawasaga Bluffs but after becoming tightly wedged beneath the rocks, estimated 20-feet south of his entry point, he began calling for help.
One of our instructors, Dave Dunt, was among those who arrived first with the Barrie Fire Technical Rescue Team.
“It was completely black down there. Light doesn't come down into the caves,” said Dave Dunt, with the technical rescue special operations team with Barrie Fire and Emergency Services. “It was such a tight spot, I couldn't fit my head down there with my helmet on.”
Dave was one of about 50 rescue workers on the scene who rescued the hiker. He was trapped approximately two kilometers into the woods at the Nottawasaga Bluffs hiking trails near Devil’s Glen Provincial Park, just outside Singhampton, south of Collingwood.
