We were called to respond alongside other agencies to rescue a lady who was injured and in the river near the campsite in Hayfield. We worked with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to get the lady safely out of the water using our rescue stretcher. She was then assessed by crews from East Midlands Ambulance Service and the air ambulance, before we carried her up to Kinder Road to the waiting ambulance.
We wish the lady and her husband well and hope she makes a speedy recovery. Thank you also to local residents who were unable to use Kinder Road whilst this rescue was carried out.
