A dedicated community Trojan out for a dog walk along the canal in Mossley came to the rescue of a female who had slipped on mud and sustained an extremely painful ankle injury.
Oldham Mountain Rescue Team deployed a vehicle and one of of their team doctors, who arrived at the same time as the NWAS ambulance.
OMRT assisted the paramedics with splinting the injury and helped stretcher her to the ambulance for onward transport to hospital.
Said an OMRT spokesperson: “Well done to the several passers-by who helped stabilise and reassure her until help arrived.”
Three team members were involved for 45 minutes.
