Incident report

A Buxton and Edale snatch squad was called to the Grindleford area late morning to assist the ambulance and helicopter crew with an injured female.

The casualty, a 21 year old from the Doncaster area, was taking part in a team building exercise in the upper reaches of Padley Gorge, near Longshaw, when she slipped on rocks and sustained a fracture or dislocation of her lower leg.

She was evacuated by stretcher a short distance over rocky, uneven ground to the waiting aircraft, and flown to hospital for further treatment.
