Mountain Rescue Teams to the Rescue

Two mountain rescue teams went to the aid of a man who suffered serious injuries when he fell while walking with friends.

More than 20 volunteer members of the Woodhead and Glossop Mountain Rescue Teams were called to the scene in the Crowden Valley after the 19-year-old from Sheffield broke his hip and arm in a 10m (33 feet) fall near Black Hill in the Peak District.

His two companions raised the alarm yesterday afternoon and the North West Air Ambulance flew to the site, but its crew could not extricate the walker from his position and called on the expertise of the mountain rescue teams.

Since the MRT are a volunteer outfit, I would hope that the people who are saved by this unbelievable organisation make a suitable donation to the MRT coffers, which due to the extraordinary circumstances of their work need constant replenishment.
