CALLOUT 32/22: Injured mountain biker near Holywell
At 9:30pm on Thursday night the team was called to assist a mountain biker south west of Holywell. He had sustained a significant injury to his leg.
Team members attended and provided pain relief, before manipulating his leg back into a neutral position, in order to protect the blood supply to the limb below the injury site. His leg was then splinted and he was carried by stretcher to our Landrover, then he was driven directly to hospital.
Well done to the casualty party who had fitted an improvised splint before we arrived and met incoming team members to direct them quickly to the scene.
Get well soon!
