An NWAS request for assistance was made to help an Ambulance crew transfer a Lady with a broken leg 400m across a heavily iced field.
Due to the current weather conditions and the concern for possible issues with hypothermia the Duty Team Leader immediately arranged for a small team and our land rover defender to go direct to the reported location.
Due to the state of the field, the team decided to move the lady by stretcher. So after warmly packaging the lady into one of our casualty bags both Team Members and the Ambulance Crew managed to relocate the lady to the waiting ambulance.
Incident started at 13:46 and ended at 16:34 making 2.8 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 01920 17190. Total rescuer hours: 28
