Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to rendezvous in the Goyt Valley following a request from East Midlands Ambulance Service for assistance with an injured elderly man on the footpath close to the ruined Errwood Hall.
Nineteen members responded and quickly climbed the short distance up to the old hall.  A 85 year old local man had turned awkwardly and suffered a dislocated hip.  The weather was cold and wet but this was the repeat of an injury which had occurred several times before and the gentleman was in good spirits as he waited for assistance.
The injury was treated by ambulance staff before the team members placed him on a stretcher for the carry back down to the car-park for onward transport to Macclesfield hospital.
