Incident #985

CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the search and evacuation of a 49yr old man who had fallen on The Pennine Way sustaining a lower leg injury. The man was believed to be approximately 1 mile along The Pennine Way from Upper Heights Farm.

Whilst team vehicles were en-route, a local resident moved the casualty closer to the main road. Once on-scene, three local CVSRT members (who had travelled direct), assisted the ambulance crew to transfer the casualty into ambulance.

In attendance:
25 CVSRT members
