Incident report

A male was out with friends accidentally dropped his phone whilst taking photos of this popular beauty spot. He fell awkwardly whilst trying to retrieve the phone and in the process possibly fracturing his femur. A Midlands Air Ambulance helicopter responded and a traction splint was applied, along with pain relief by the helicopter crew. He was then placed on a scoop stretcher, but required assistance transporting him to the helicopter due to the location of the casualty. When team members arrived he was placed on the team’s stretcher and carried a short distance to the helicopter.
