Incident report

A Joint Edale and Buxton MRT Call-out for a 30 year old male climber who fell whilst leading at Stanage, sustaining a head and neck injury. After treatment on scene by mountain rescue members along with air ambulance staff, he was evacuated from the crag and to the air ambulance at the bottom, before being taken to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield. His climbing helmet was significantly damaged in the incident – however, wearing the helmet prevented him from sustaining a much more serious injury.
