The team were called out this evening to a 43 yo male runner who had fallen whilst descending Thorpe Cloud injuring his ankle. A family who had been out for a walk stopped to help the man and called for an ambulance. The man was treated for a suspected fractured ankle by an EMAS land crew, our specialist Vacuum Splint was placed around his leg and he was lowered, on the team stretcher, off Thorpe Cloud using a man-belay protected lower. He was then carried across the river dove and transported by the EMAS crew to the Royal Derby Hospital for further treatment
