We were alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who had sustained a knee injury on Broad Crag, (Scafell Pike).
As a stretcher carry from there is particularly long, potentially dangerous, and difficult in any direction, air assistance was requested. The casualty was airlifted to hospital by Helimed 08 as team members were starting to arrive on scene. Thank you again to Duddon and Furness and Helimed 08 for your assistance.
Incident started at 15:26 and ended at 20:43 making 5.3 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 218075. Total rescuer hours: 69
