Other Agencies

The team was called by Cumbria Police about a walker who had turned over on her ankle and was unable to weight bear. Due to poor signal it took a while to determine that the location was on the Corridor Route but in the meantime a full callout was made. Due to slightly low numbers support was also requested from Duddon and Furness MRT for a potentially long carry. Once on scene the team medics assessed and treated the walker before carefully transferring to the stretcher for the long carry to Wasdale Head and rendezvous with a land ambulance. Thanks to Duddon MRT for their help once again. We wish the walker a swift recovery and hope she’s back on the fell soon.

Incident started at 13:26 and ended at 21:56 making 8.5 hrs in total. There were 14 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 222093. Total rescuer hours: 119
