Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called along with colleagues from Edale M.R.T.  in a joint team response following the request from East Midlands Ambulance Service for assistance in Cressbrook Dale, Warslow.

The incident occurred in the grassy limestone dale near to Peter Stone

The 66 year old Lady from Northampton, on an annual walking trip with friends, tripped on a hidden stone in the grass and fell forward onto her arm.   Due to the nature of the injury her right arm was locked in an extended and very painful position out to her side.  An E.M.A.S. paramedic diagnosed a dislocated, possibly fractured right shoulder.

Following treatment and the administration of pain relief by the ambulance paramedics she was placed on a rescue stretcher to be carried out by team members to the A623 road where the ambulance was waiting.
