14 May 2019

At 16:41 on Tuesday 14 May Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a fallen female close to The Top Brink Inn, Todmorden.

27 CVSRT members were available to respond immediately and deployed in team vehicles or direct to the incident.

A YAS Rapid Response Vehicle Paramedic provided medical care to treat the casualty’s lower leg injury. CVSRT members then packaged and stretchered her a short distance across fields to an ambulance for further treatment and transfer to hospital.

Following stand down of the incident the team attended training at Baitings Reservoir to practice setting up anchors and belaying on steep ground.

Thanks to Top Brink Inn - Pub and Restaurant for the use of their car park for our vehicles during the incident.
