Volunteers from the Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team and Goathland Fire Hall were called in twice yesterday.

Volunteer teams were called to the Hole of Horcum just after 11:30 am to report that a lady had fallen ill on one of the trails at the bottom of the feature. After on-site assessment, she was packed into one of the Mountain Rescue Team’s stretchers and transported to the hairpin on Saltergate Bank by the team and a team from the Goathland Fire Station before being transferred to a waiting ambulance and transported to final medical care.

Shortly thereafter, the team was called with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and Yorkshire Air Ambulance to report that an individual had fallen about 12 feet from an embankment into a stream and had suffered a head injury.

The mountain rescue team says:

“The first reports indicated that the individual was in the water and unable to save himself. When we arrived at the scene, we learned that the helicopter crew had succeeded in extracting the patient and remove it from the site. “

Yesterday’s two jobs bring SRMRT’s call count to eighty-six for the year.
