Incident #1259

At 17:42, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with an incident involving a young female who had fallen on rocks sustaining a suspected back injury. Team vehicles deployed immediately and arrived on-scene within 23minutes, just as Helimed was landing.

Once the casualty had been assessed by a doctor and paramedics, she was immobilised in a vacuum mattress, packaged and stretchered by CVSRT members to the ambulance at a nearby farm.
