Pots and Pans rescue drama

Date published: 06 April 2021


Eight members of the Oldham Mountain Rescue Team were involved in a hillside drama on Saturday after an alert from the North West Ambulance Service.

A woman had slipped and sustained a lower leg injury while descending Pots and Pans, Greenfield.

Mountain rescue responded after establishing the location with a phone call to her partner, and arrived at the same time as NWAS paramedics.

The injury was splintered with OMRT vacuum splits and the casualty carried to the ambulance by stretcher in an operation lasting under an hour.
