Incident 47/2018 – Jul. 25th Wed 15.16 Malham Moor, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A mountain biker (f, 70) hit a rock on the bridleway from Tennant Gill to Henside and was pitched forward, over her bicycle handlebars, fracturing both of the bones to one wrist. Once her arm was immobilised, during which process the patient steadfastly refused any pain relief (She just gritted her teeth and said ‘Get on with it!’.), she was helped to her feet and supported for the quarter-mile walk to a team vehicle. She and her husband were driven to their parked car, for him to drive to hospital.
