A call was received from Cumbria Police about a lone walker who had taken a tumble on the Corridor Route. He had injured his knee and was unable to move. A full callout was swiftly made. Once on scene, team Casualty Carers assessed and then splinted his leg, that had both ankle and knee injuries. After packaging in a casualty bag and stretcher, the long carry was made to Gavel Neese with a mixture of sledging and using the stretcher wheel. The walker was then transferred to a team vehicle to the car park at Wasdale Head, to meet the land ambulance for the handover. We wish the walker a swift recovery and hope he gets back to his fundraising walks very soon.

Incident started at 18:00 and ended at 23:27 making 5.5 hrs in total. There were 26 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 221089. Total rescuer hours: 143
