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.
