Incident #991

At 12:20, CVSRT was called to assist a casualty who had fallen and sustained a lower leg injury at Brontë Falls. Team members and vehicles responded swiftly and headed to the casualty’s location to help.

Whilst en route, a second callout was received from the Ambulance Control Centre asking for assistance with a 72yo gentleman, who had fallen in Bingley (Incident #992). At this point, Calder Mobiles 2 & 3, along with 12 members carried on to the Brontë Falls incident, whilst Mobile 1 diverted to Bingley.

Once on-scene, team members headed direct to the Brontë Falls casualty to assess his injuries. Once treated for a possible dislocation and the casualty’s pain was under control, he was gently loaded onto a stretcher and carried up the hill to the team vehicle where he was loaded into the team Land Rover and transferred to Airedale Hospital for further treatment.

Team members at this incident then stood down and headed back to our Mytholmroyd base and then onward to their homes.
