Callout #9 – Cox Tor

10th April. At 12:16 we were called by Police to assist the Ambulance Service with an incident near the summit of Cox Tor. An 80 year old male had fallen and sustained head injuries including an open wound. An advance party left the car park within 10 minutes of the Team being called out to go to the casualty site to feed back what equipment would be required. Two team Land Rovers then deployed toward the casualty location, transporting personnel and kit. After the Paramedic had assessed the subject, and dressed his wound, he was loaded onto a wheeled stretcher and taken down to the SWASFT Ambulance waiting in the car park, for the onward transport to hospital.
