Rescue Gisburn Forest

On Sunday 12th September at mid-day, Bowland Pennine MRT were called out by the North West Ambulance Service for a 25-year-old male who had fallen from his mountain bike at the bottom of the infamous Hully Gully route. It transpired that he had managed to walk 400 meters from the crash site in a semi-conscious state before collapsing. The North West Air Ambulance were quickly on scene followed by ourselves to assist and to provide treatment for a serious head and potential spinal injury. He was quickly packaged, transported in our Mountain Rescue Landrover Ambulance to the helicopter where the air crew then transported him into the trauma center at Preston Royal Infirmary.

As always with all incidents, wish our casualty a speedy and healthy recovery.
