Today CVSRT members have been providing safety cover for an organised downhill mountain bike event at the Havok Bike Park, which is nestled in dense steep woodland near Cornholme.

Mid-way through the morning CVSRT members were called away to assist with an incident near Brontë Falls, Haworth (Incident #1034) before returning to continue the safety cover at the event. Thankfully the events passed by with only two incidents that required our assistance.

Incident #1035
A rider fell off and sustained an ankle injury. Team members provided pain relief and the casualty was stretchered to the car park where his friend transported him to hospital for further medical assistance.

Incident #1036
A rider was heard to crash by two team members. He had sustained a cut but was up and walking around so appeared to be ok, however ten minutes after the crash he was exhibiting signs of mild concussion. He was cared for at the scene by a team doctor.

CVSRT would like to thank the organisers for holding a prize raffle to help raise funds for the team.

Earlier this afternoon, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to provide urgent assistance with a difficult extrication of a driver of a vehicle, which had left the A672 near to Junction 22 M62 (Rishworth Moor) and had come to rest approx. 50ft down the steep banking in a deep ravine.  24 CVSRT members were available to assist immediately and deployed in team vehicles or directly.

The driver had incredibly managed to self-extricate from the vehicle and appeared to have minor injuries, however the mechanism of the incident dictated full immobilization for the extrication up the steep ground.

Whilst the medical teams cared for and prepared the casualty for the evacuation, CVSRT members rigged a rope system and lowered a stretcher with two barrow boys. Once the casualty was packaged, the stretcher was safely hauled up to the roadside and handed over to the waiting ambulance crew.

Great teamwork between all the emergency teams made for a prompt rescue.
