CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the search and evacuation of a 49yr old man who had fallen on The Pennine Way sustaining a lower leg injury. The man was believed to be approximately 1 mile along The Pennine Way from Upper Heights Farm.

Whilst team vehicles were en-route, a local resident moved the casualty closer to the main road. Once on-scene, three local CVSRT members (who had travelled direct), assisted the ambulance crew to transfer the casualty into ambulance.

In attendance:
25 CVSRT members

Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and Oldham Mountain Rescue Team joined forces to assist a walker with breathing difficulties and chest pains. 

The gentleman was part of a walking group who were approaching the trig at Blackstone Edge when he became ill.  The casualty’s well-being is always a priority and as the location was on the border of our operational area, both teams were deployed.

Once on-scene, the casualty was treated by North West Air Ambulance (NWAA) paramedics and transferred to the helicopter by team members from Oldham MRT and CVSRT, for the onward journey to hospital:

Both teams stood down and returned to their respective base.
