Assist SWAST on Haytor

Written by

Callout 42/2020 - Haytor, 15:04 29th September 2020

Dartmoor Search & Rescue Ashburton were deployed by #DevonandCornwallPolice to assist South Western Ambulance Service with the extraction of a female stuck halfway up Haytor Rocks with back pain.
Initially only the rope team were going to be utilised, but upon further enquiries and the known nature of the injuries, it was decide a full team call out was needed.
At 15:36, the full team were called and met at Haytor top carpark. Team members present were very quickly at the casualty site where a rope extraction and use of one of our stretchers were carried out. Once lowered to the ground the casualty was transported in one of our team land rovers to the roadside and handed over to SWAST, where she was taken to Torbay hospital. We wish her a well in her recovery.
An amazing 15 members attended this call out, so a big thank you to who could attend.
Team stood down at 17:10hrs
