Incident #1463

At 15:31 on Thursday 11th August 2022, 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 collapsed near Scammonden reservoir whilst out running
YAS were first on scene and provided initial medical care.  Upon arrival of CVSRT the casualty was placed onto a stretcher and transferred up the dam wall with the assistance of a rope system, then carried along the track to the awaiting ambulance. 
Thank you to Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team (HVMRT) for their support.
