Team rescues 12-year-olds

Volunteer rescuers were called out twice in one night to help youngsters in distress.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team were called at 6.30pm on Wednesday to help paramedics get to a 12-year-old girl who had hurt her arm and leg when she fell from a rope swing in woodland near Brewery Lane, Queensbury.

While she was being treated, another call came in for help getting to a 12-year-old boy who had injured his ankle while playing in a quarry off Pinnar Lane, Southowram.

The team’s volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and give up their time for free.

The team is funded by donations from the public.
