CALLOUT 56 – Call to assist Greater Manchester PoliceJune 16, 2021
Early this afternoon (13:55 13/6/21) the team were called to Witches Quarry near Pendle Hill to a climber that had taken a substantial fall.
Three of our team members were also climbing at the quarry when the incident occurred, so were they quickly able to assist other climbers there in administering basic first aid and ensured the team were rapidly mobilised.
The North West Air Ambulance Charity landed on the scene and North West Ambulance Service crews also attended the incident. They treated the casualty who has sustained multiple injuries in the fall. He was given pain relief before being placed onto a stretcher by our team volunteers and carried to the helicopter for transportation to the hospital.
We wish the gentleman a speedy recovery.
