Incident report

Full team call-outs for Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue Teams following a call from a couple in distress in the upper reaches of Grindsbrook.  The husband and wife team from Dorset and on holiday in the Peak District were located by a police helicopter and team members were quickly guided in to their location. 

On arrival it was discovered that the lady had arggravated a previous back injury with a slip whilst descending Grindsbrook in the darkness.  The seriousness of the old injury prompted concerns about a stretcher carry causing even more damage and consequently an RAF Search & Rescue helicopter was called.

The helicopter was overhead within an hour and in total darkness lifted the casualty from a difficult location and transferred her to a Sheffield hospital for further examination.  The husband was assisted back down to Edale.
