Incident 46 Rescue Helmsley
October 22, 2017
Saturday October 14th 1700hrs. We were asked by Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with an injured walker in a wooded area North of Helmsley. The male walker, who was in his 50s, was part of a walking group from Hull when he slipped and hurt his leg. Due to the rough terrain the ambulance crew were unable to carry him to their vehicle and asked for our help.
Twelve of the Team responded to the callout and were able to reach the incident site in one of our Landrover ambulances and transport the injured man around half a kilometre along forestry tracks to the waiting ambulance. The incident lasted around 90 minutes.
