The team were called out by the police to assist a female fell walker with a suspected broken ankle. She was descending from the summit of Scafell Pike when she suffered a stumble fall just above Lingmell Col. One of our team leaders, who was already on the fell, gave casualty care before the arrival of the rest of the team. The casualty was given analgesia and her leg was splinted before the stretcher carry (and sledge) down to Backenclose via Lingmell Nose. We were very grateful to have the assistance of 12 members of Duddon and Furness MRT for the carry down.
