Incident report

A joint Edale & Buxton snatch squad call to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service with a 76 year old female who had slipped whilst walking in the popular limestone area above the River Wye.

On hoilday from Cambridge with her family, the lady suffered a suspected fracture to ankle in a slip on the steep path to Sheldon.  Early treatment was carried out by ambulance staff whilst the mountain rescue teams were being mobilised.  Our members then carried the casualty back to White Lodge car park for transport by ambulance to a Derbyshire hospital.
