Hollowstones, Scafell Pike

The team was called by the police to respond to a mobile ‘999’ call. A middle aged male walker had a suspect broken ankle somewhere in the Hollowstones area on his descent from Scafell Pike back down to Wasdale Head. He was with his two sons who had managed to carry him for about an hour. A passing doctor was already on the scene and had assisted.

Around 20 team members turned out in the very warm evening sun and carried him down on a stretcher to the waiting ambulance at Brackenclose. The incident was closed down at 2130 hrs.

Incident started at 18:00.
