CVSRT reach 900th Callout…

On Friday 9th October at 10pm, CVSRT received a callout from West Yorkshire Police to provide assistance to Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) with a driver who had taken a wrong turn and ended up getting stuck down a very steep and narrow, dead end unmade road.

Whilst the driver was unhurt in the incident, he was actually in considerable pain following a recent back operation. Therefore, due to his awkward location, the YAS crew requested help to safely evacuate the driver back to the main road.

Once on-scene, team members used Mobile 3 as an anchor point whilst Mobile 2 winched the vehicle back up the track to level ground where the driver was then transferred to the main road and handed over to the YAS crew.

At midnight the team stood and returned to base before continuing their journey home.
