High Parkamoor 18th April 2015 12:33hrs 15/2015
It was a warm, clear and sunny afternoon, with a gentle breeze.
The team was asked to attend another incident involving a mountain biker. He had come off his bike after hitting a boulder on the rough track leading from Nibthwaite up on to High Parkamoor at the southern end of Grizedale Forest.
Due to the fact that the Rescue Team was assisting with the marshalling of an annual Trail Race, some members rendezvoused with the land rovers at an agreed location. Whilst they made their way to the casualty, the North West Air Ambulance was able to locate and land within 100 metres of the incident. They attended to the gentleman who had sustained a deep laceration to his forehead as well as a few grazes, although the full extent of his injuries was still to be determined. He was stretchered the short distance to the helicopter for his onward journey to hospital.
A total of 7 team personnel responded to this call out which took 2 3/4 hours.
