Incident #1376

At 17:55 on Tuesday 6th July 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 suffered an ankle injury whilst out walking near Withens Clough Reservoir.
CVSRT were first on scene, quickly assessing the injury which was a potentially serious open fracture dislocation to his ankle.  Trained casualty carers and a team paramedic provided medical care and pain relief then re-set (reduced) the ankle to stabilise the injury. The casualty was then packaged onto a stretcher, placed in a team vehicle and transported a short distance from the dam to the waiting ambulance.
