CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of an 80yo male suffering from chest pains. The gentleman was situated in a wooded area near Walshaw Farm.

When team members arrived on-scene, aircrew paramedics from Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) were already in attendance and treating the casualty. The aircrew requested the team’s assistance to quickly evacuate the casualty from the woodland to the helicopter for further assessment.

CVSRT members promptly rigged a single rope haul system to assist with the evacuation by stretcher up the slippery hillside to the helicopter. Following further assessment the casualty was then carried to the land ambulance for transfer to hospital.

At 14:35, team members returned to base, then onward to their places of work or homes.
