Incident report

The Team was called out to a lady who was orienteering in the Goyt Valley.

The lady had fallen and sustained a lower leg injury, and was unable to continue. The casualty was assessed by team members and provided with pain relief. She was wrapped in a fleecy casualty bag to keep her warm, placed in the vacuum mattress and on to a mountain rescue stretcher. She was then carried down the footpath to the car park for onward transportation to hospital.
