Incident report

A participant on an outdoor recreational course, become stuck in between some rocks. The team responded as part of the mid-week snatch cover with Edale Mountain Rescue Team. Due to the position of the casualty, it was obvious that more specialised equipment would be required and assistance from Derbyshire Cave Rescue Organisation was requested.

Mountain rescue team members were able to remove soil from around the casualty’s leg, this then helped free the casualty. After an assessment by team medics the casualty was able to walk to awaiting vehicles.
