A 15 year old boy was nearing the end of the North Loop mountain bike trail in Whinlatter Forest when he crashed his bike and hit a tree. The impact caused a very painful shoulder injury and he was unable to move. His Dad managed to alert the Police who requested Keswick MR support. After an examination by the team medics, and some pain relief, the boy was put into a vacuum mattress and stretchered to the road. As there was no immediate ambulance availability the boy was taken to the Keswick Cottage Hospital in the team vehicle for further examination and treatment.
