A joint snatch squad of Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue Teams was called to Monyash Village, near Bakewell on Saturday afternoon.
We located a 75 year old lady from Newton Abbott, Devon, who had slipped on wet limestone near Ricklow Quarry in Lathkill Dale whilst walking part of the Limestone Way. She sustained head and wrist injuries and was treated on site by the air ambulance doctor and paramedic.
The aircraft had landed some distance away, and the casualty was carried by stretcher to the waiting Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland Air Ambulance. She was flown to the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, for further treatment.
