CALLOUT 399: Yesterday afternoon DCRO was called out to assist a caver who had dislocated his shoulder whilst caving in Stoney Middleton.
The team were assisted by medics from EMAS who administered pain relief and relocated the shoulder. DCRO volunteers were then able to haul the casualty and all those still underground back to the snowy surface.
Thanks to EMAS for the assistance – and apologises we returned them much muddier than when they started! Also thanks to the Vicar of Eyam who called by and provided hot drinks and biscuits!
We wish the casualty a speedy recovery!
