Yesterday evening (18:30 21/03/21) saw another callout and deployment of the team to assist the North West Ambulance Service.
The team were requested to attend to Pleasington playing fields near Witton Country Park, Blackburn where an elderly lady had taken a tumble on some steps through the woods resulting in a potentially very serious leg injury.
As the team were deployed the lady was already being treated by NWAS crews and she was packaged and ready for the team when we arrived. The casualty was placed onto our bell stretcher and the off-road wheel before a slow a steady descent through the woods and across the fields to the awaiting ambulance for onwards transport to hospital and further care. As always we with the casualty the very best for a speedy recovery.
