Unknown Location – Mon 7th Sep 2009 – Callout 67 in 2009

Called by the police on Airwaves regarding a 28 yr old male climber who had fallen on Green How, Eskdale and sustained a neck and wrist injury. This came in whilst the team were still responding to incident 71. The back up vehicle was turned round form the Great Gable job and headed for Green Crag/ Harter Fell. The Duddon and Furness MRT were also contacted to assist. Confusion then followed as there was a call to advise that an Air Ambulance was on scene but needed MRT assistance to carry the casualty. A different location was given – White How, Seathwaite. Eventually the Green How incident location was stood down and Duddon & Furness attending the White How job. Due to the lateness in the day, the Air Ambulance also had to stand down and return to Base. The Sea King from RN Gannet was tasked to assist Duddon and Furness to complete the job – a small number of WMRT were involved and stood down around 7.00 pm.
