At 09:47, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a 52yo man who had fallen off his mountain bike and sustained a head injury. The rider’s friends raised the alarm as he was feeling quite confused and drifting in and out of consciousness.
22 team members were available to respond instantly and made their way to the location in team vehicles or directly. Once on-scene, team members assisted the YAS crew to make the casualty comfortable and then packaged him in our vacuum mattress before evacuating the casualty some distance by stretcher to the road, where he was handed over to the ambulance crew for transfer to hospital.
