The team was called out on the 22nd May at 13:30hrs to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service with an injured mountain biker in Grenoside Woods.


The casualty had taken a fall at speed and was experiencing lower back pain, as a precautionary measure, the casualty was immobilized including the use of a pelvic binder and transferred onto our stretcher using the YAS scoop to minimise movement, a short carry through the woods to the waiting ambulance meant the mountain biker was soon on his way to hospital for further treatment.
