*** Incident No.26 ***

Thursday 9 June 2016, 19.49hrs

Yesterday evening the Team was requested by the North East Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a fallen climber. The climber had fallen 7m from the crags at Back Bowden Doors (or Dancing Green Hill on the OS map!), he had sustained a wrist and suspected back injuries.

North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves responded, and working alongside the Great North Air Ambulance Service and the NEAS Hazardous Area Response Team, the casualty was stabilised and evacuated to the awaiting helicopter.

We hope the climber makes a swift recovery and is back out on the crags soon. This is the fourth incident involving a climber in as many weeks.

The incident involved 8 Team members for 1 hour 20 minutes.
