Callout 35/2020 - Dart Valley - New Bridge, 15:37 9th August 2020

Dartmoor Search & Rescue Ashburton were deployed by Devon & Cornwall Police to an injured walker along the River Dart.

A family of four had been walking along the river and crossed over to Long Island Ford where a female slipped between rocks and sustained a lower leg injury. Team casualty carers treated the female at the riverside and was stretchered off the island to a nearby vehicle who transported the female back to Newbridge car park to an awaiting ambulance.

We wish the lady a speedy recovery & wishing her family well & a safe journey back home.

Team stood down at 18:48hrs
