Incident #1258

At 13:33, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a 31yr male who had fallen from a rope swing sustaining an open ankle fracture. Due to the location of the incident and anticipating a long stretcher carry, 12 members from CVSRT with additional members from Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team were deployed.

Once on-scene, team members administered pain relief before packaging and evacuating the casualty from the woodland to a farm track where the ambulance was waiting. Following decontamination of all equipment and personal kit, all members stood down and returned to bases.

As vehicles arrived back at their bases, CVSRT members were alerted to a second incident at Lumb Falls, Pecket Well and immediately deployed to scene.

HVMRT members also received an alert from West Yorkshire Police to an imminent missing persons search in their operational area, therefore returned to their base ready for deployment.
