At 15:03 on Monday 8th April 2024, Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the extraction of a walker who had fallen near Lumb Falls, suffering an ankle injury.
YAS were on scene first and provided initial medical care.  Upon arrival of CVSRT further medical care was provided, placing the injured ankle in an immobilising and protecting vacuum leg splint, then transferring the casualty onto a stretcher.
