The Cleveland Mountain Rescue team was called out at the request of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to support the Great North Air Ambulance Service who was on route to reports of an injured man who had sustained injuries after falling out of a tree.
The man had fallen from a tree in the Commondale area, roughly 8-miles east of Great Ayton and the Air Ambulance was on route and the Cleveland MRT was requested to assist.
A Cleveland team land rover with four members on board was sent from their base with others making their own way to the incident.
The injured man was treated by the air ambulance crew. Once he was stabilised the mountain rescue team carried him on their scoop stretcher around 100-metres to the Air Ambulance so he could be flown to the hospital for further treatment and analysis.
In total 11 team members were involved in the incident for approximately one-hour before standing down and then travelling back home or places or work.
