Buxton Team called by Derbyshire Fire Service to assist with the evacuation of a casualty from a tall structure in the quarry workings. The casualty, a 45 year old man from Chesterfield, had suffered a serious medical collapse whilst working at a great height. It was first thought that an aerial rope-way rescue would be required. However, ambulance and fire service personnel were able to carry the man to ground level. He was then transferred to a helicopter.
The call-out was cancelled as team members were arriving at the scene.
