Wastwater Screes

The Team were called in by the police to rescue an elderly lady and her dog who were stuck on the Screes path opposite the road junction half way along the Lake. A limited callout was put out on the pager system requesting the Boat Squad (group of 4 trained helmsmen/launchers). The lady in her early seventies and her exhausted dog were located by a small advance group who had set off on foot from the Wastwater pump house whilst the rescue boat was launched. The lady and dog were transported back across the lake to waiting friends. The incident was closed at around 9.30 pm and around 10 team members were involved including a Cumbria Constabulary police officer who attended on scene.

Incident started at 18:45 and ended at 21:30 making 2.8 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 25
