Incident #978

At 21:18, CVSRT was alerted by Yorkshire Ambulance Service to an incident at Shipley Glen near Baildon, involving a mountain biker who had fallen from his ride and injured his pelvis. Due to the remote location and lack of vehicle access, the team was immediately deployed to assist.

Within eight minutes the first CVSRT members began to arrive at the location and assessed the casualty’s condition. An equipment kit list was quickly relayed to our responding vehicles and once on-scene, team members headed directly to the casualty site and prepared for a rapid evacuation.

The casualty was promptly made comfortable and packaged in the vacuum mattress, then stretchered from the rough ground location to the road where he was handed over to the ambulance crew.

Whilst the team was preparing to depart the location, it became apparent that a vehicle driven by one of the casualty’s relatives had a flat battery. Always happy to oblige, team members then provided a jump-start to the drivers car so he could get home safely.
