A walker who ended up dislocating his ankle whilst in a wood in Hunnington this afternoon called 999 and directed ambulance staff to his location.

The 999 call came in at 4.15pm from a man who had been out walking and had fallen, causing a nasty injury to his ankle. Despite his pain, the man directed ambulance staff to his location which was in a wood off Frankley Green in Hunnington near to the RSPCA. 

An ambulance, Hazardous Area Response Team paramedics and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “With the man’s excellent directions, ambulance staff left their vehicles and went on foot across a field and through several gates into the woods and found the man propped up against a stile. 

“It was obvious to ambulance staff that the man, in his 40s, had sustained a fractured dislocation of his left ankle and immediately gave him pain relief to ease his discomfort.

“The ankle was splinted to immobilise it before the man was taken back to the ambulance using the same route. The man was conveyed by land ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
