Trapped in Squeeze Test for hours [The Age] 22-Apr-2014 At 9:03:10 AM climbingjac
Message
The ABC seems to be reporting that the poor lad "fell" in the squeeze test. Not being a fan of confined spaces I'm not certain that it is possible to fall inside the squeeze test, but the article appeared to be otherwise well written and based on factual events as opposed to drama.

One thing is for sure, the poor boy would absolutely, as they say, have been freezing cold. It was cold at Arapiles even when you're clad in all your fleece and down attire, and there he was in shorts in that horrible freezing cold squeeze problem. He must have gotten panicky at some stage too which as I understand it is not helpful when you are stuck.

Sending lots of get well thoughts his way.
