It was a busy one for the Bowland Mountain Rescue Team this weekend.

The group of volunteers were called out to three separate incidents across the region, including a missing person in Silverdale, who was later found safe and well.

On Saturday October 6, a team were called out to Roach Bridge on Roach Road near Samlesbury, to rescue a 14-year old boy who had fallen and broken his ankle while fishing near the water's edge close to the woods.

A team of around 25 volunteers took 14 minutes to locate the teenager before they transported him across the fields to a waiting ambulance.

A spokesperson for the Bowland Mountain Rescue Team said: "We attended an incident at around 3.55 on Saturday afternoon where a 14-year-old boy had been fishing near the water's edge and had fallen over and broken his ankle.

"Paramedics were on the scene as well and once we had got the boy back onto the road he was attended to by ambulance personnel."

The second rescue took place on Sunday October 7 when at 1.30pm, the team were called to Longridge Fell to reports of a man who had fallen.

On arrival at the scene they found a 63-year-old male suffering from head injuries and showing signs of hypothermia.

The team of 25 volunteers carried out casualty care on the man and treated him for head injuries.

The spokesperson said: "We sent a team of 25 volunteers out to Longridge Fell to reports of a gentleman who had taken ill.

"We carried out casualty care and got him into a team ambulance before driving him to a suitable point where he was handed over to waiting paramedics."
