Cyclist airlifted to hospital with severe facial injuries and potential spinal injuries


Keswick Mountain Rescue Team were called out yesterday (3 Aug) to a man that had crashed his bicycle at Force Crag Mine, near Braithwaite. Seventeen team members were involved in the rescue which took 2 hours and 37 minutes to complete. 
A spokesperson from KMRT said:

"A 60 year old male was cycling at speed down the main track from Force Crag mine towards Braithwaite when a sheep leapt out into his path causing him to crash.  

"Although his helmet saved him from a significant head injury he still sustained severe facial and possible spinal injuries. 

"A group of walkers were nearby and raised the alarm. One of the walkers was an A&E doctor who carried out a thorough assessment and made sure the spine was protected from movement.

"Keswick MRT were quickly on scene and the medical team provided first aid and pain relief. The casualty was placed in a vacuum mattress and stretchered to one of the team vehicles.

"Due to the nature of the injury helicopter assistance was requested and and a handover made in a field behind the Braithwaite Institute."
