- Full Callout — Injured & Medical
- Hollowstones, Scafell Pike
- Low Cloud, Rain
- Knee Injury
The first of two jobs that came in succession today was a 999 call to the Police by a father and his son. The gentleman had damaged his knee whilst descending Scafell Pike, although he tried his best to get down the hill under his own steam, the Brown Tongue path just was too much for him.
The Team Leader was able to confirm his location via a PhoneFind and then immediately deploy casualty carers to assess his injuries whilst a stretcher party made it way to the location a little later.
The gentleman and his son who were on their own three peaks challenge, sensibly spread over the course of the week, returned to their hotel and decided to delay the rest of their challenge until another day.
Wasdale MRT would like to wish the gentlemen a speedy recovery and good luck in finishing their challenge at a future opportunity.
Incident started at 16:56 and ended at 21:45 making 4.8 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY201072. Total rescuer hours: 62
