Incident report

On Sunday afternoon a joint Buxton and Edale snatch squad was called to Mam Nick, on the northern side of the Mam Tor ridge.

The ambulance service had requested assistance to recover a 21 year old female walker who had collapsed on the bridleway between Mam Nick and Edale. She was treated on site by the crew of the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance who had landed nearby, and then taken in the aircraft to Edale where she was transferred into a land ambulance and taken to hospital for further treatment.

Neil Carruthers, Buxton Team Leader commented “This lady was French and communication was a little difficult at first. However, her walking companion was able to translate”.
