At 13:41 on Sunday 7th March 2021 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a female who had fallen whilst out walking near Ogden Water, suffering a lower leg injury.
CVSRT were first on scene and provided initial medical care and pain relief, immobilising the injury in a splint. The casualty was then transferred into a warming and protective winter casualty bag, onto a wheeled stretcher, and taken from the footpath to a wider track.
At the track the casualty was transferred into a specialist off road vehicle and driven by the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) to the road head and the awaiting ambulance.
