Just after midday, the team were called to assist a male caver in Peak Cavern who had dislocated his shoulder. The man, in his twenties and a member of a university caving club, had sustained his injury in Peak Cavern's main stream passage downstream from the Surprise View ladder. He was treated by the team doctor and managed to make his own way to the surface with some assistance from team members. The incident took five and a half hours.
