Kinder Mountain Rescue Team
Saving lives in wild and remote places

33: Callout Saturday, 18 Aug 18

We were called at 15:10 by the North West Ambulance Service. A mountain biker had fallen in the wooded valley at the river Goyt in Offerton and sustained serious injuries. NWAS medics were on scene, as were the Fire Service, but they required assistance with the evacuation.

We lifted the casualty on to our stretcher, carried him up the steep slopes and loaded him into our landrover ambulance.

A short drive and we transferred the casualty to the NWAS land ambulance.
