Whoops..... As we assembled on the bridge to leave a man fell down some rocks into the river and looked to have broken his arm. Our First Aiders assessed the location and decided it was unsafe to assist and summoned assistance for him in franglais through a passing street cleansing team and watched as a milk float ambulance came to assist. A number of our party saw the fall, but no one was concerned by what they saw. We've offered to chat with them if they feel they need to.
