Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to assist a female walker having difficulty getting off Kinder Scout. The lady, accompanied by her daughter, had a previous medical condition and had become exhausted. The casualty was quickly located at the top of Crowden Brook under Crowden Towers and following examination was assisted to walk off the hill.
First reports indicated that a stretcher evacuation was likely so the necessary equipment was deployed from Upper Booth. Edale Mountain Rescue Team was also called to assist in the event of a carry-off but fortunately the lady was able to walk all the way down.
