Incident report

A call for the Joint Buxton and Edale MRTs’ Snatch Squad following the report of a child and father in possible difficulties in Grindsbrook river.

Following heavy rain Grindsbrook was in spate and a father and 11 year old daughter became separated whilst attempting to cross.   The rescue teams were alerted by the father when he was unable to reach his daughter on the opposite bank and had already lost his rucksack in the attempt.

The teams responded searching both banks until the couple were located and guided safely back to Edale village.
