[19] RESCUE – Golitha Falls, 03/08/2018 14:35

For the second time this summer, the team were called called out by the police at the request of the ambulance service to carry out the evacuation of a casualty at Golitha Falls on the edge of Bodmin Moor. The female had broken her leg and was on difficult ground, requiring a very tricky and technical rescue. Team members were quickly on scene and rigged up a series of safety ropes to allow team members to pass a stretcher onto safer ground, from where she was carried back to the car park for onward transport to hospital.

A great bit of joint-working with Devon and Cornwall Police and South Western Ambulance Service Trust. The entire rescue took 11 members around two hours to complete.
