Incident report

A joint snatch squad to assist the ambulance service evacuate a local lady from steep slopes near Coombs Dale.

The casualty, a 59 year old woman who lives nearby, was out walking in fine weather with friends, when she slipped on steep grassy slopes and injured the base of her spine. After being treated on scene, the Mountain Rescue Teams carried her on a short but tricky stretcher transfer to a playing field where an air ambulance was waiting. She was thence transported to a hospital in Chesterfield for further treatment.
