Three days, two incidents! Yesterday we had a short lived incident involving a female in her 70s who had sustained a leg injury on the hillside above Whiteley Shield in the West Allen valley. The request for Mountain Rescue support had come from the North East Ambulance Service, who had established there was no vehicle access to the casualty’s location.
Ultimately neither ourselves and North of Tyne MRT nor NEAS were required as the caller and the casualty had thankfully managed to make their own way off the hill. Just as the first of our members was arriving at the RVP!
The incident involved 5 Team members for 31 minutes.
Please like and share to raise awareness of what we do.
