head of the rescue service of the BRK forchheim, as well as the mountain guards on duty erlangen (location veilbronn) and furth (location untertrubbach). The rescue team leader, which was provided this weekend by the mountain rescue erlangen, decided in addition to the
landing vehicle (VW amarok) of the mountain rescue service forchheim because of the local conditions.
On the spot it turned out that the patient was suspected of a pelvic fracture. The emergency doctor decided due to the severity of the injury, as well as the extremely remote accident site, to request a rescue helicopter, informs the mountain rescue in a press release.

The patient was then flown by the latter to the hospital in erlangen.
