Yesterday afternoon, we received a request to assist North West Ambulance Service with a walker near Crown Point in Burnley. The lady had fallen and sustained a lower limb injury. The ambulance crew were unable to get the lady to the ambulance due to the distance and the terrain.
We used our specialist stretchers to carry the patient to the awaiting ambulance, she was then transported to hospital.
