- Back Injury
We were alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who had sustained a back injury after a slip. Given the potential for a serious injury and the fact that it would have been an uncomfortable stretcher carry over awkward ground, air support was requested. Helimed 58 air ambulance attended and took the casualty down to the valley, the team walked down with the other family members.
Many thanks to GNAAS for their assistance. We hope the walker has a speedy recovery.
Incident started at 13:59 and ended at 18:48 making 4.8 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 196023. Total rescuer hours: 62
