Incident 22 of 2021:-
20/07/2021, 18:21, Ickenthwaite, SD323894
On a warm summer evening, a mountain biker had an accident and sustained several injuries including a suspected hip fracture. Cumbria Police called us out and we despatched two Land Rovers. Fortunately, the track was good and we were able to drive right to the casualty’s location. He was assessed, pain relief given, and then placed in a vacuum mattress (to stabilise the injuries for transport). He was lifted into our converted ambulance Land Rover and taken to our base. There, he was handed over to the crew of the waiting land ambulance. His subsequent X-ray is shown below with his permission.
13 members attended and the incident lasted 2 hours and 10 minutes.
