Major emergency rescue operation launched after 'amorous' couple fall over stone wall
Rescue operation included firefighters, paramedics, a mountain rescue team and even a helicopter
A couple who fell over a dry stone wall while getting 'amorous' sparked a major emergency rescue operation in Yorkshire.
The couple, who are reported to be in their early 30s, had to be rescued in an operation including firefighters, paramedics, a mountain rescue team and even a helicopter, after they fell 12ft down a steep embankment.
According to reports in The Telegraph the couple were in a clinch when the woman fell backwards over a wall, her partner attempted to grab her but was pulled over the wall as well.
The woman was taken to hospital with suspected pelvis injuries and the man suffered possible abdominal and leg injuries and was flown to hospital by air ambulance.
Firefighters used ladders to help paramedics get to the couple and transfer them onto stretchers.
A North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: 'It would appear that a couple in their 30s were getting a little bit amorous against a stone wall at the side of the road when unfortunately the lady has slipped backwards and fallen over the wall and down a steep embankment on the other side.
'Unfortunately as she has fallen the male has attempted to get hold of her but the momentum has pulled him over as well.
'They have both fallen down the steep embankment.'
'The fire crew used a ladder to help paramedics get to the couple and rescue them.
'It was a very strange incident,' the spokeswoman said.
