Incident report

Joint Buxton and Edale Teams’ snatch squad called to Jacob’s Ladder near Upper Booth. A female walker had fallen whilst descending the path and was in the river with head and back injuries as well as hypothermia.
Treated on-site the casualty was carried on a  mountain rescue stretcher to a waiting road ambulance.
An RAF Seaking helicopter, initially tasked to this job, was diverted when the Team was made aware of a second, unrelated incident at the top of Grindsbrook Clough.
