At 12:58 today, with several team members already on standby at our Ladybridge Hall Base/HQ, the team was contacted by NWAS (Manchester) Emergency Operations Centre who were requesting our assistance following the report of an injured male in playing fields at Eagley Brook, Bolton.
An 18 year old male had been sledging down a fairly steep hill near to the banks of Eagley Brook, and had injured himself after falling from the sledge, coming to rest on the flat playing fields below.
An NWAS Emergency Ambulance was despatched to the incident, along with the North West Air Ambulance Helimed 72, and two fully crewed Bolton MRT Land Rover ambulances. (Coincidentally one of the two crew members on the NWAS Emergency Ambulance was a former Bolton MRT team member, Iain Peel)
