Topic - World Challenge-Morroco "no helicopter, no ambulance, no medic"

So... in the coroners verdict of misadventure, he questioned why there was no access to a helicpoter, ambulance, medic in the high atlas mountains.

The school the boy was from have said "If we had been made aware from the beginning that in the event of an emergency the best that we could hope for was a local minibus with not even the most basic medical facilities or equipment on board and no trained medic to save lives, we would not as an academy have signed off on the trip."

Seems a bit of an over reaction to a tragic death, and total ignorance as to how much of the rest of the world exists!!
