At 14.38hrs this very warm (32c!) very sunny and dry afternoon, we were paged by NWAS (Manchester) EOC Parkway for our assistance in regards to a climbing accident at Wilton Number 1 Quarry, north of Bolton.
An NWAS (Manchester) Emergency Ambulance had been called to the report of a climbing accident, and upon arrival requested the assistance of Bolton MRT and the North West Air Ambulance Helimed 08.
With the help of the four of our team members who had arrived very quickly on scene, along with the the NWAA and NWAS crews, the male casualty was evacuated the short distance from the base of the quarry, to the waiting helicopter, for onward transfer to Royal Preston Hospital with suspected spinal injuries.
