We were called by Cumbria Police about a walker who had fallen and sustained a head injury close to the summit on the descent from Scafell Pike. The team quickly deployed, with a coastguard helicopter also requested. Rescue 199 from Prestwick was on scene first and the winchman was just helping the casualty into the helicopter as the first Wasdale team member arrived. The walker was then flown to hospital for further assessment and treatment. We wish her a quick recovery and our thanks once again to the crew of Rescue 199 for their support.

Incident started at 16:07 and ended at 01:08 making 9 hrs in total. There were 14 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY212073. Total rescuer hours: 126
