Incident report

Buxton team called to assist Kinder with the evacuation of a 52 year old male from Sheffield who slipped and sustained back and possible pelvic injuries following a fall on sheet ice whilst descending the Pennine Way. Kinder team had originally been called earlier to the incident but called for additional assistance when an RAF Seaking was unable to land due to fog. The casualty was evacuated by stretcher to Lee House using the new team landrover to light the path for the stretcher party.
