THE family of a young girl from Ramsbottom have praised the emergency services after she fell down an embankment.
Kayleigh Crook 11, was playing in Tagg Wood when she is thought to have slipped down the embankment, just after 4pm on Tuesday.
Paramedics, police and mountain rescue volunteers were all alerted to the incident, off George Road.
Specialist officers from the North West Ambulance Service’s hazardous area response team were also drafted in. An air ambulance was called, and Kayleigh was airlifted for treatment to the Manchester Children’s Hospital.
It was later confirmed that she had not suffered any broken bones.
Later her mother, Kirsty Hayes, posted on a police website: “I want to thank you all for the wonderful work (you) did today for my daughter. She’s okay thankfully. I’m so grateful for everything xx.”
And Kayleigh herself also added her thanks later, saying: “Yes, I’m fine, very sore legs and back though, thanks for all of the support guys had a terrible tragedy today x I really appreciate all of the support x.”
