RESCUE – Nine Maidens (12/07/2020)
With some of the team already deployed on an extended search near Tolvaddon, our search managers were requested by South Western Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of an injured walker at Nine Maidens, on the Penwith Moors. A small team were immediately dispatched, along with our off-road ambulance.
The casualty had suffered a lower leg injury and the location meant that the team were needed to help transport her to the Cornwall Air Ambulance for a short trip to rendezvous with a waiting land ambulance. It was great to see the new aircraft in action and she packs quite a punch under the rotors!
