At 15:15 today, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a male walker who had fallen approximately 20m down a steep slope from the main track at Hardcastle Crags.

Team members made their way to the location and once on scene assessed the casualty’s injuries. Thankfully he had sustained only minor cuts and bruises from the tumble.

The casualty was then placed on a stretcher and using a rope system, hauled back up the steep slope to the track and handed over to the ambulance crew.

On Friday 19th October at 23:25, CVSRT members were called to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service and the YAS Hazardous Area Response Team with an incident at a residence in Eastwood Lane, Todmorden.

A 71yo male had fallen down some steps at his home and access within the house was restricted causing a challenging evacuation. The residence was also located up a steep unmade track, which made access difficult for the ambulance too. Several local team members were deployed to assist the YAS crew with the evacuation.
