A girl became the centre of a delicate rescue operation for ambulance crews when she fell in dense woodland last Monday.
The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) were alerted to a park along the Woburn Road in Ampthill shortly after 3.15pm.
An ambulance crew, response car and the Trusts hazardous area response team (HART) were dispatched to the scene.
One of the Trust’s HART managers Gavin Turner, who attended the incident said: “Following an initial assessment by the ambulance clinicians already at the scene and due to the rough terrain where the girl was found, they requested the attendance of HART to assist in the girls safe removal to the ambulance.”
Gavin added; “Our team were able to deploy a Polaris 4X4 vehicle which helped in her treatment, stabilisation and safe removal over a rough terrain.
“Following this, she was taken by ambulance to Milton Keynes Hospital for further care.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Ampthill park staff for their superb assistance with their help and assistance allowing us access through the gates.”
The girl sustained a leg injury and is believed to be 11 years old.
