CALLOUT 69 – Call to assist female injured on Pendle HillSeptember 18, 2021
Yesterday evening the team were called out by the North West Ambulance Service at approximately 8:20 pm to the River Ribble near Ribchester. Whilst en route, we also discussed with and mobilised our neighbouring team, Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team as we were unsure which side of the river the casualty was from the information provided.
The casualty had fallen from a rope swing and sustained multiple trauma injuries and was consequently treated by our teams’ paramedics, before being joined by the Bowland Pennine team doctor.
After treatment, the Team then packaged the causality, used a ropes system to back up the lift to get them safely to the path before then being stretcher off with our ‘big wheel’ to the nearby car park for the waiting ambulance.
We hope the causality has a comfortable recovery and our thoughts and wishes are with the family.
