The team was called by North West Ambulance Service regarding a walker who has taken a tumble fall of 5-10m and had sustained multiple injuries, including a head injury and deep cuts to his leg. The Team Leader made a swift callout and also asked an advance party to get to the scene quickly.
Once on scene a medical assessment was made, and the casualty was treated and given pain relief. He was then transferred to the stretcher and carefully taken back to Brackenclose to the waiting land ambulance for the onward journey to hospital. We wish the walker a very quick recovery. He was incredibly stoic, having sustained his injuries at the bottom of Mickledore gully on the scree, and somehow getting close to the stream crossing before calling for help.

Incident started at 20:50 and ended at 00:53 making 4.1 hrs in total. There were 22 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 196074. Total rescuer hours: 90
