Incident report

Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue teams called in a joint snatch squad to the south eastern edges of Kinder Scout.

The casualty was a female walker with an ankle injury at the top of Golden Clough. She was treated on site by team medics and evacuated by stretcher towards the Nab, lower down the valley. The teams were able to load her into an air ambulance at this point, and into the care of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland emergency services for onward travel and treatment at a hospital in Chesterfield.
