2nd Call Out of the day and the weather had not changed, being dry and sunny.
On this occasion we were called out by the North West Ambulance Service to help with the evacuation of a mountain biker. He had fallen off his bike whilst cycling close to the west shore of Lake Windermere. The casualty had suffered a dislocated shoulder which is a very painful condition.
Before we were able to move him, the gentleman was given pain relief in various forms to help make him more comfortable. We then stretchered him to the ambulance which took him on to Furness General Hospital.
Again 11 team personnel responded to this incident which took another 2 hours.
