CVSRT - Tuesday, 04 May 2021


04 May 2021
At 16:25 on Tuesday 4th May 2021 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the locating and evacuation of a casualty reported to be heard shouting for help near the riverside at Kirkstall Abbey.
Upon arrival at the reported location CVSRT joined the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) in a joint effort to search the river, rivers edge and surrounding land.
All search areas were completed with no casualty found.  Whilst this turned out to be a mistaken call for help it was made with the best intentions.
