A call was received from North West Ambulance Service on Saturday regarding a walker who had fallen and sustained a head injury. As the Team Leader was gathering information and preparing to call the team out, a passing Mountain Leader stopped to assist. He provided shelter, assessed the situation, and provided an update back to base. It was agreed that the walker was able to walk off the hill under supervision from the ML, with the team ready to respond if needed. Fortunately this was not required and the team stood down when the party arrived at Wasdale Head.
Many thanks to the ML who stepped up and provided much needed assistance and reassurance very quickly.

Incident started at 14:18 and ended at 18:41 making 4.4 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 211076. Total rescuer hours: 13
