With incident 38 in full swing, a further call was received from North West Ambulance Service about a walker who had fallen and had broken her wrist. Communications were difficult in that area with messages being relayed from scene via a text ‘relay’ to NWAS. With many resources being committed to the ongoing incident a further callout was made and some team members that were already in base responded quickly. Fortunately as they were setting off on foot they met up with the casualty who had managed to walk off themselves. Team medics made an assessment and then splinted the wrist, and then the partner drove the injured walker to hospital in their own vehicle. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Incident started at 16:55 and ended at 19:18 making 2.4 hrs in total. There were 14 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY15563 07966. Total rescuer hours: 34
