The team was called out by West Midlands Ambulance Service to assist with a casualty who had been out walking with friends. Whilst looking for what was thought to be an injured bird, the casualty had slipped on the steep, grassy slope landing heavily injuring her lower leg. The paramedics on scene provided pain relief and splinted the casualty’s leg.
The team carefully placed the casualty onto the mountain rescue stretcher and evacuated the casualty down the track to the waiting ambulance at the Roaches Gate for onward transportation to Macclesfield Hospital.
