Incident #1510 Elland Wood

At 11:24 on Sunday 11th June 2023, Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the extraction of a male who had fallen, whilst out mountain biking, in Elland Wood. 
Both YAS and CVSRT arrived on scene together and provided medical care and pain relief.  The casualty was then transferred into a protective winter casualty bag and onto a stretcher. 
The extraction required the use of a rope system to help safely raise the stretcher up a steep section of trail, followed by carry through the woods to the road head and awaiting ambulance.
