Incident report

A joint Buxton Edale snatch squad was called to assist the East Midlands Ambulance Service following a call from a walking group in Lathkill Dale.

One person in the group had fallen and sustained a head injury. The groups exact location was unknown. An ambulance paramedic searched the path in Lathkill Dale but experienced poor mobile communication.

When contact was eventually made, it transpired that the casualty had recovered and the group continued their walk.
