2021-50: Lover's Leap

6-year-old boy airlifted from Lover's Leap, Derbyshire

Posted by on

The team were called out just before noon on July 25th 2021 after a 6-year-old boy had fallen at Lover's Leap, Dovedale sustaining a fractured femur. He was treated on scene for a fractured femur by the team and the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity helimed crew. A fantastic bit of flying from the pilot allowed for repositioning the helicopter directly at Lover's Leap ensuring a fast transfer to hospital with the least discomfort for the casualty. Apologies for any inconvenience caused as foot-traffic on the path was temporarily closed off to allow for the safe landing of the helicopter and the safety of passers by. The male was taken to hospital for further treatment. #Team999 #Callout #prehospitalemergencymedicine #Phem #volunteerrs #community
