FIREFIGHTERS braved sub zero temperatures to rescue a man from a ditch who had been sledging on Arthur’s Seat.
A fourteen strong crew raced to the scene at 12.22am on Friday morning after an ambulance team called for their help.
The 20-year-old man – who was thought to have a head injury – was hauled from the gully in Holyrood Park thanks to a line rescue team.
A Lothian and Borders Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 11.12pm on Thursday evening that a man was between Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat.
“We were told that the male had been sledging and had a head injury.”
He was carried by stretcher from the bottom of Queen’s Drive to the ambulance and was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary at 1.30am.
