[13] – RESCUE COVER – Bodmin Five Tors, 17/04/2016

The team provides rescue cover for the annual Bodmin Five Tors run, with over 200 runners covering the 8 mile course this year. With the route being rather muddy in parts, team cas-carers had to deal with the usual sprains, strains, grazes and Achilles problems, but a particularly nasty fall on the dismantled railway to Cheesewring Quarry required more immediate attention. The runner involved suffered head injuries requiring evacuation by the team to an Air Ambulance, which thankfully was able to land a matter of metres from the cas-site. We hope he’ll make a speedy recovery and be back running the hills soon.
