CALLOUT 66 – Call to assist walker near Grane Road, HaslingdenAugust 17, 2021
Yesterday afternoon (13:40 7/8/21) the team were deployed to assist the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust at Cowm Quarry.
A motorbiker had come from their bike and taken a fall in the quarry.
The North West Air Ambulance Charity was also deployed and arrived on the scene dealing with the casualty as the first team members arrived to assist.
The team then set up a rope system to lower the casualty to safer terrain, before using the wheel of the stretcher to extract them for the onwards trip to the hospital via the air ambulance.
It certainly was a day of ‘liquid sunshine’ and not quite the weather of the past few weeks as can be seen in the photos!
We wish the gentleman a speedy recovery.
