[26] RESCUE – St Breward, 16/07/2015 09:00

Several team members were involved in a multi-agency rescue this morning, assisting Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and the South Western Ambulance Service HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) to evacuate a male with a possible spinal injury from a steep-sided valley near St Breward. The technical rescue involved rigging four independent hauling and safety lines to allow the safe extraction of the casualty to land ambulance, before being finally evacuated by Devon Air Ambulance. We wish him well and hope he makes a speedy recovery.
