Fallen Climber at Masson Lees

Posted by on
The team were called out just before 1pm today.
A climber had fallen around 4-5 metres, landing on their back. The male, who had been climbing at Masson Lees Quarry near Matlock, was treated on scene by a multi-agency response including the team, East Midlands Ambulance Service, a Community First Responder and the crew of #Helimed54.
The male was placed in a Vacuum Mattress to support his spine and evacuated on the team stretcher over some difficult terrain with some rope backup systems. He was taken by road to the Royal Chesterfield Hospital for further treatment.
