Callout #2 – 2019

26th January. We were called by the Police at 14.07 to assist with an incident between Devil’s Tor and Rough Tor. One of a group of eight 14 / 15 year old girls training for Ten Tors was injured and could not proceed further. Members were deployed in heavy rain and low cloud to locate the group who were staying with the casualty, and were in group shelters. They were located near the head of a valley 500m SW of Rough Tor and the casualty was assessed. Another group of Ten Tors trainees were now also present at that location. The low cloud cleared at this point and a Devon Air Ambulance Helicopter was able to land. Team members assisted in loading the casualty aboard the helicopter, which then transferred her to a SWASFT ambulance at Holming Beam for transport to Derriford Hospital. Team members escorted the rest of the group back to their minibuses at Holming Beam to ensure all were safely off the Moor.
