After returning from this morning’s earlier call-out, we were called to assist the helicopter evacuation of an injured mountain biker in Wharncliffe Woods. The casualty was a long way from the nearest roads, and there was no ambulance access, only 4-wheel drive vehicles could get down the track. The casualty was treated on the scene by the air ambulance paramedics and we helped to stabilize and immobilize him before transferring him to a stretcher and carrying him to the helicopter landed in a nearby field.
