15.38 (Grid SD 330 944)
There had been heavy rain all morning thus making the ground slippery underfoot.
The team were contacted by Cumbria Police (CUMPOL) to an incident in Grizedale Forest. A young male had come off his bike while cycling the North Face Trail. It had been reported that the casualty had suffered injury to his back.
A full team call out was initiated and the team made way to Grizedale. Several team members made their way to the visitors centre to rendezvous with the others.
On scene the casualty was examined and placed in a vacuum mattress (keeps the body rigid) and stretchered up to the waiting Ambulance from the North West Ambulance Service.
Once on board he was transferred to Lancaster Royal Infirmary for further treatment.
This call out involved 15 team members and lasted just under 2 hours.
