Buxton Mountain Rescue team were called to an incident not far from the Cat and Fiddle road this afternoon.
The casualty, a 37 year old woman from Bollington, was walking with a small family group when she decided to jump over a puddle, landed awkwardly, and broke her right ankle.
She was treated on site, and then carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance for the onward journey to hospital.
As it was the lady’s birthday, the team felt obliged to sing to her in the customary manner – only she can judge whether this element of care was a soothing tonic, or additional torture!
