Team members were alerted by Yorkshire Ambulance Service at 12:59 to reports of an injured fell runner who had sustained a leg injury and was unable to move in the area near Bronte Falls.

Within a few minutes the first response vehicle was en-route to scene with the other three vehicles all away from their bases by 13:17 along with local team members going direct.

Once the first team members were on scene the casualty was treated by team medics for his leg injury, the casualty was then stretchered up the hill and to the road head, during this time conditions on the hill changed and what was a pleasant winters day soon turned into heavy rain and cold wind showing just why you need to be prepared for all conditions when out on the moors.

Once at the road head the casualty’s friends offered to take him direct to A&E in their car, as the casualty was able to travel seated we assisted him into the car which allowed our vehicles and team members to return to base to re equip and to put wet kit in the drying room.
