CALLOUT 34 – Call to assist NWAS with casualty extractionMarch 20, 2021
Around 15:30 yesterday 18/03/21 the team were called by NWAS to assist with a lady who came off her bicycle and had a suspected fractured ankle some way along the canal towpath, near Colne.
The team were mobilised in Mobile 2 to aide in getting the lady on the bell stretcher and carried to the ambulance some 500m away.
Quite a straight forward job for us thanks to the NWAS paramedics (one of which is a full team member also!).
The lady was in good spirits albeit slightly embarrassed for the attention and soon enough went to the hospital for the necessary scans and treatment.
We wish the lady a speedy recovery and hope to see her along the towpaths, enjoying the country air again soon.
