Incident #1138

At 23:43 last night, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to provide assistance with the locating and evacuation of a casualty who had fallen on a steep, rural track and sustained a suspected spinal injury. 20 CVSRT members were available to respond immediately and within 9 minutes of deployment the team began to arrive at the location.

Once on-scene team members prepared for the evacuation, whilst CVSRT doctors provided additional medical assistance to the casualty. Once the male was comfortable he was packaged in a vacuum mattress and a winter casualty bag, then stretchered off the hill to the ambulance and handed over to the crew.

At 01:00 CVSRT stood down and returned vehicles to base, then members continued their journeys home.
