Incident #1162

At 17:58 on Tuesday 30 April Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to locate and evacuate a mountain biker who had sustained abdominal injuries following a fall in Colden Clough.

21 CVSRT members were available to respond immediately and deployed in team vehicles or direct to the incident.

CVSRT members were first on scene and administered casualty care. The casualty was then immobilised in a vacuum mattress and evacuated 1km by wheeled stretcher to Yorkshire Air Ambulance Helimed 98 for transfer to hospital.

Following stand down of the incident team members either returned home or, a little later than planned, to The Night Jar Brewery, Mytholmroyd for a team social.
