Incident report

Eight local team members responded to a call for assistance from Edale MRT for a tobogganist with a lower leg injury. The incident was concurrent with the Goyt’s Lane incident in which a number of Buxton Team Members were already involved.

The male from South Derbyshire suffered a suspected fracture in an accident on the lower slopes of Mam Tor above the Rushup Edge Road. He was treated by an Edale Team doctor and team members before being wrapped in a vacuum mattress and casualty bag ready for evacuation to a waiting EMAS ambulance.

His final toboggan run was on the mountain rescue stretcher which was sledged down to the roadside after being carried over a fence.

He was taken to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield for further assessment and treatment.
