A call-out for Buxton Mountain Rescue Team following a request from East Midlands Ambulance Service for assistance with a walking accident near Castle Naze above Combs Valley.
The ambulance service had taken a call relating to a 49 year old lady having stumbled and sustained an ankle injury whilst descending from Combs Moss towards the road. The solo walker had been assisted two other passing walkers who slowly helped her hobble several hundred yards towards the road.
As the first team members arrived they met the lady at the roadside stile and shortly afterwards an E.M.A.S ambulance and the team vehicle also arrived at the scene. The well equipped and experienced lady walker from Macclesfield was treated by ambulance staff before being taken to Macclesfield hospital for further investigation.
Other team members were stood down on route.
The lady would sincerely like to thank “Emily and Andrew” who were the two walkers who offered so much help.
