Members had just returned from incident no 20 when YAS asked for assistance again, after a walker (m, 82), out with his wife and two terriers, was seriously injured by cattle near the bridge over Winterscales Beck. When the first CRO members arrived, paramedics were attempting CPR. When a second road ambulance and an air ambulance arrived, CRO members withdrew. FATAL.
The walker’s wife sustained a leg wound and was taken to hospital, while one of their terriers required veterinary treatment.
