- Knee Injury
The second job was a 999 call to the Police about a female who had tripped over and twisted her knee whilst descending from the summit of Scafell Pike. Initially the lady was helped by two passing doctors, however, based on the nature of her injuries the team was deployed to further help with her medical care and then extract her off the hill to meet an awaiting ambulance at Brackenclose.
The team has since had a lovely email of thanks from this lady and her son, informing us of her injuries and that she and her son made it safely home.
We wish her all the best in her recovery and hope that it does not stop them from further safely enjoying the great outdoors.
