It was a warm clear evening.
The North West Ambulance Service requested our assistance with the evacuation of a young male mountain biker who had come off his bike whilst negotiating the Black Trail in Grizedale Forest.
Two land rovers were utilised from the base. On arrival, paramedics were already attending to the casualty who had suffered an injury to his knee, along with abrasions to his other knee. He was stretchered to the land drover before being driven to the ambulance waiting at the Visitors Centre. The young man was taken to Furness General Hospital.
15 members responded to this incident which took 1 1/2 hours.
