Incident report

The first of two “back to back” call outs on Friday afternoon took the team to the slopes below the ever-popular Cats Tor in the Goyt Valley where a paraglider had made a harder landing than usual, sustaining a lower leg injury in the process.

Team members were quickly on scene, and our casualty carers were able to assess the injury and prepare the pilot for a lengthy stretcher evacuation to the road head.

North West Ambulance Service crew were waiting here to transfer the casualty to hospital.
