A 76 year old female was carefully descending the main Dodd Wood track on her ebike when she and her male companion decided to rest for a moment and take in the view. Unfortunately having stopped she overbalanced, fell sideways and badly injured her hip. A group of mountain bikers were passing and provided initial help whilst waiting for the team to arrive. A vehicle was dispatched and was able to park near to the casualty. Some strong pain relief was provided before a short stretcher carry to the MR vehicle, which then transferred the casualty to an ambulance at the road head.
23 team members responded to the call out (not all were deployed) – 1 hour 52 minutes
