The third call out this week came in the early hours of Saturday morning. At around 01:30 the team were contacted by North West Ambulance Service to assist with a 45 yr old male casualty, who had fallen from height and sustained a head injury in Ramsbottom near to Peel Tower.
Due to the details and suspected mechanism of injury the team were immediately mobilised and the team doctor was soon on scene with paramedics shortly followed by HART team.
As more team members were arriving on scene, the casualty was moved to the ambulance and the team stood down.
