Incident #1418

At 14:40 on Saturday 29th January 2022, Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with a female who had been struck and trapped by a falling tree branch whilst out walking near Sunnydale Reservoir, East Morton. 
YAS and the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were first on scene and provided medical care and pain relief before removing the branch.  Upon arrival of CVSRT the casualty was placed into a protective and warming vacuum mattress, onto a stretcher and carried out of the woods to a CVSRT vehicle.  The vehicle was able to drive along the track to the road head and transfer the casualty to the waiting ambulance.
