Incident report

Buxton Edale snatch squad called to evacuate a 58 year old male from Millers Dale who had slipped on ice in the gorge at the top of the clough whilst out walking with his dog. The casualty who had sustained a suspected dislocation of the knee had to lower himself down the gulley until he managed to get a mobile signal. The casualty was treated on site by team members before being evacuated on a stretcher using rope rescue to the top of the gulley where he was evacuated to Chesterfield by air ambulance.
