Air ambulance flown to West Malvern after quarry plunge
A CLIMBER was flown to hospital yesterday after falling in a quarry on the Malvern Hills.
Emergency services were called to the quarry above Westminster Bank at about 4.40pm after a man in his 40s was reported to have fallen about 15 feet.
A land ambulance was sent out as well as the air ambulance from Strensham, which landed in the grounds of the Elim College.
The man, who was suffering from a laceration to his head and complained of back pain, was flown to Worcestershire Royal Hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening.
