Just as our busy weekend was coming to a close, at around 20:30 last night (22/5/22) the team was contacted by the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS) to assist with the extraction of a young male who had taken a serious fall on his bike near Whalley.
The biker had sustained multiple injuries in the fall and was already treated being treated by the NWAS crew, but they were requesting assistance for extraction. The team was mobilised and on the scene quickly with two team vehicles from our Burnley base and other members making their way directly.
Once there, team members assisted in packaging the casualty and then carried them on our stretcher to the awaiting ambulance. As always, we wish them a speedy recovery.
