At 13:14, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a 67yo man who had slipped whilst walking on the moor above Walsden and sustained an ankle injury. The casualty was walking as part of a larger group who were able to raise the alarm when the accident happened.

15 team members were available to respond and made their way to the location in team vehicles or directly. Once on-scene, team members stabilised the casualty and treated his injuries. They then packaged and extracted him to a barn which had been opened by a local farmer and was situated close to a road head. Shortly after arriving at the barn, a YAS ambulance crew arrived and the casualty was handed over for transfer to hospital.

In attendance: 15 CVSRT members
