Just as team members were leaving work for the day a call was received to help an injured walker on Shutlingsloe. Mobiles one and two were tasked to RV with available team members.
Team members carried emergency bags and a stretcher to the summit and met the casualty party.
An experienced walker from the High Peak area had tripped on the descent and suffered a fractured wrist. Just as the lady was being assessed by the team’s casualty care technicians the NPAS helicopter from Greater Manchester Police arrived on site. After the initial assessment, the casualty was transported via the helicopter to the team’s RV location for onward travel to hospital by the casualties family.
We’d like to thank the owners of Shutlingsloe Farm for a welcomed cup of tea and biscuits.
