The team was alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who had fallen and sustained a head injury. A full callout was quickly made and due to the nature of the injury and the length of time it would take the team to arrive and then evacuate from the fell, air support was also requested. Helimed 58 duly responded and was on scene within about 30 minutes. The injured walker was then transferred in the helicopter to hospital for further assessment and treatment. The Wasdale team was then stood down. Thanks to the Helimed crew for their help once again.

Incident started at 12:12 and ended at 14:50 making 2.6 hrs in total. There were 21 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY210080. Total rescuer hours: 55
