At 15:17 on Friday 5th March 2021 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a male who had fallen from a rope swing in Eaves Wood, Mytholm.
CVSRT were first on scene and provided initial medical care and pain relief, placing the casualty’s arm and pelvis in protective splints. The casualty was then transferred into an immobilising vacuum mattress and onto a stretcher. The route out of the woods involved a short rope system raise from the valley floor, then a stretcher carry along a footpath to the awaiting ambulance.
