The lady is stretchered away
Seventeen stalwarts from Oldham Mountain Rescue Team came to the aid of a lady who fell and injured her ankle while walking with her family along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal at Diggle on Saturday.
The team, who were alerted to the situation by North West Ambulance Service, were soon on the scene.
One of the team’s Casuality Carers was able to assess the casualty and administer pain relief before packaging her on a stretcher and wheel for the journey back along the canal to the waiting NWAS ambulance.
The team were involved for 1 hour and 11 minutes.
