Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was requested by Staffordshire Police to assist with an incident near to Gradbach Youth Hostel late on Monday night.

A 17 year old female had fallen into the River Dane near Gradbach and sustained an injury to her lower leg. Initial reports indicated she couldn’t get out of the river, and was very cold and frightened. Whilst the team was en-route a further call from the police reported that together with paramedic crews, they had managed to recover the person from the river, and that our resources were no longer required.

The team was stood down.
