Broad Crag Col, Scafell Pike – Sun 10th Jun 2012 – Callout 33 in 2012

Whilst we were attending to the injured woman on Pillar we were alerted by the police about a walker on Scafell Pike who had severe cramp and was unable to descend. Once the first casualty was stablised the Sea King from RAF Boulmer winched four team members aboard and carried them to Scafell Pike to attend to the walker with cramp (this would have taken at least a couple of hours on foot). After the helicopter had taken the first casualty to Carlisle Infirmary it returned to carry the second casualty and the team members to Wasdale Head.
