The team was alerted to a male walker who had slipped and heard a ‘pop’ in their knee and was then unable to bear any weight. The team deployed quickly to the area and assessed the casualty before administering some pain relief and a vacuum splint. He was then packaged into a casualty bag and stretcher and moved down the hill to the car park, from where he was driven by another member of the walking party to hospital for further assessment and treatment. We wish the gentleman well with a speedy recovery.
Incident started at 16:36 and ended at 19:30 making 2.9 hrs in total. There were 20 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at SD 174 995. Total rescuer hours: 58
