A combination of a Bank Holiday, good weather and beautiful countryside was always going to draw people to the great outdoors, so it was no surprise that while driving to callout 62 some vehicles and team members were diverted to an incident at Tegg’s Nose Country Park.
Clay, water and a steep slope angle resulted in the casualty slipping and taking a tumble while descending a footpath, sustaining a lower leg injury. North West Ambulance Service had been called to give initial medical treatment and requested help in extracting the casualty back to the road.
Team vehicles were able to drive up a farm track quite close to the scene, and the casualty was soon on a mountain rescue stretcher for the short but steep carry off to the track, and a drive to the waiting ambulance.
We wish the casualty all the best for a quick recovery and a return to complete the walk. Our thanks also go to the members of the public who waited patiently while this incident was being resolved.
Equipment was then cleaned and repacked onto the vehicles ready for return to base and the next call out.
