Incident report

Twenty eight members of the Buxton and Edale teams operating as a snatch squad were quickly able to respond from fundraising duties to a call out to assist a 40 year old female on Mam Tor.

The casualty, on holiday from Northhampton, had slipped whilst walking to the summit. She sustained a suspected fracture of the ankle.  Treated on site by team first aiders she was then carried by stretcher to the Nottingham – Leicestershire air-ambulance for transport to an A & E hospital.
