odd for both climbers to get hurt ... especially for the belayer (or were they simuling or rapping?) to get pulled up 12m then dropped
Another possible scenario:
1. They were starting the climb from a ledge 12 meters (~40') above the lower surrounding area; leader fell, ripped the gear and anchor; both ended up in the lower area.
Hope both climbers get better soon and heal up well.
