Whilst 22 team members were en route to assist with an incident at Brontë Falls near Haworth, a second callout was received from the Ambulance Control Centre asking for assistance with a 72yo gentleman, who had fallen in a wooded area near Bingley.

At this point, Calder Mobiles 2 & 3, along with 12 members carried on to the Brontë Falls incident, whilst Mobile 1 with 10 members diverted to the Bingley incident, utilising Mobile 3 once the crew had been dropped off. 

Once on-scene, team members assisted the ambulance crew to treat the gentleman for hypothermia and a head injury, before packaging and evacuating the casualty to the ambulance waiting nearby. At 14:45, the full team stood down and returned to base, and then onward to their homes.

Quick thinking and prompt actions made for two successful simultaneous rescues. Read more about Incident #991 Brontë Falls.

CVSRT would like to mentioned the young lads who found the gentleman and dialled 999, then waited at the road junction to wave team vehicles down at the correct side road to the nearest access point.

In attendance:

10 CVSRT members 

Yorkshire Ambulance Service

Total Duration: 1hrs 46mins
