Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue team called to assist an injured walker in steep-sided limestone dale.

The casualty, a 52 year old man on holiday from Cleethorpes, had slipped descending some greasy steps and fell some distance, which resulted in injuries to both sides of his chest. He was treated on site by paramedics, and then carried on a stretcher by team members to a Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance waiting nearby for evacuation to hospital.
