A man has been taken to hospital after being rescued from a woodland area of Chalfont St Giles by emergency services.

Ambulance and fire services attended the scene at Bottrells Lane in Chalfont St Giles on January 30, at around 4.53pm, to help an injured man who needed rescuing from a “densely wooded” area.

Paramedics were first to attend the scene to treat the man, however, the ambulance service required further assistance to reach the man from the fire brigade. Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service sent out a fire engine and crew from Amersham station to support.

Bucks Fire and Rescue Service said: “One appliance and crew from Amersham attended, along with an officer. The firefighters provided assistance to the ambulance service.”

They used a Chrysalis stretcher to rescue a man who had become injured in a difficult to access, densely wooded, area.

A Chrysalis stretcher is a compact roll-up stretcher, purposely designed for horizontal and vertical lifting of a casualty.

South Central Ambulance Service confirmed: We were called at 4.53pm to Bottrells Lane to a patient who had been injured. We sent to the scene one ambulance crew who were assessing and treating one patient. Following treatment at the scene, the patient was taken to Wexham Park Hospital.”
