Grizedale Forest

Incident number 5 of 2021:-
02/04/2021, 12.45, Grizedale Forest, SD326952
Spring was in full flow in the Lakes when a man, mountain biking in Grizedale Forest, crashed and sustained head and neck injuries. NWAS paramedics (North West Ambulance Service) had reached the casualty on foot, but needed our help for extraction to Helimed 75 from Manchester which had managed to land on the hill top. We loaded the casualty already on the NWAS scoop stretcher onto our heavier stretcher, and took him securely in our converted Land Rover ambulance up to the helicopter. He was then flown to Furness General for treatment.
12 volunteer members attended this incident, which took 2.2 hours.
