We were alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who had fallen on the way down from Scafell and sustained an ankle injury. Some team members who had just started the walk up to incident no. 36 were diverted to this incident. The casualty’s father had carried him a long way to avoid calling out the team – thankyou! The casualty was met near Hollow Gill and stretchered the short distance back to Brackenclose. The family was able to take him to the hospital in their own transport.

Incident started at 17:07 and ended at 18:54 making 1.8 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 183065. Total rescuer hours: 23
