The team was called out today to assist a 74 year old male farmer who had fallen from his quad bike, west of Foxup. The Yorkshire air ambulance (YAA) were also scrambled but the team were initially not sure, due to the nature of the terrain, if they could indicate a suitable landing site. Due to the remote location and the potential for a long carry out, we give our thanks to Clapham Cave Rescue Organisation who also provided team members to assist. In the end the YAA was successfully able to extricate the casualty and transfer him to hospital, therefore both teams were stood down.
