Incident report

Buxton and Edale Joint Team Snatch Squad call-out to assist a 25 year old male walker on the footpath from Hope to Lose Hill summit. 

Buxton team members had just returned from a training exercise and were at base when the call was received which created a rapid response.

The man had suffered a suspected fracture of the right ankle.  He was treated on site by rescue first-aiders before being carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance which took him to a Stockport hospital.
