Incident report

The team was called out to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service with the evacuation of a 78 year old female who had been walking in the Chee Dale area, a few miles east of Buxton.

This is a beautiful spot for a walk at any time of the year, but especially when covered in the first snows of the year.

The lady slipped whilst walking along the riverside path, resulting in a lower leg injury. She was initially treated by a Tideswell Community First Responder who was sent to assess the situation. Thanks for your rapid response.

The lady  was treated on the scene before being transported on a mountain rescue stretcher to the Monsal Trail where a land ambulance was waiting to take her to hospital.

We all wish her a speedy recovery.

This was our first snow related call of 2019, no doubt there will be more.
