Thank You Jill And Jeff

Last week there was a great team effort by the staff at Forest Hill Quarry responding to an incident involving a member of the public. Two elderly ladies were walking along the footpath in a neighbouring field when they were attacked by a horse. Unfortunately, one of the ladies had suffered severe injuries to her leg and once they were aware of the incident the ambulance was called and escorted to the vicinity of the incident.

Recovering the injured person required carrying her some distance over marshy ground. The AQM and a contract haulier driver assisted in carrying the injured person as the ambulance crew were unable to do it on alone. The rescue of the injured person took three hours overall.  Thanks go to Jill Carter and Jeff Jones along with Nixon’s driver, Stuart Bidereat.
