[17] RESCUE – Golitha Falls, 30/06/2018 15:10 hrs

Mid-afternoon today we were alerted to a potential call-out to assist SWAST (Southwest Ambulance Service) with a casualty at Golitha Falls. As team members were en route, further details were received that this was a female suffering cardiac issues well into the woods along the river at Golitha Falls.

Several team members were able to respond quickly with a bell stretcher and liaised with SWAST paramedics to evacuate the female along the woodland track. This was a long carry out in rather hot and humid weather, but once safely delivered to a waiting ambulance she was taken to Derriford Hospital for further observation and we wish her a speedy recovery.
