Incident report

Just as the previous call had concluded we were asked to assist Edale Mountain Rescue Team on a second call. Several Buxton MRT members and vehicles headed to RV at Hell Bank Plantation where a gentleman had slipped whilst crossing a field and sustained a lower leg injury. He was treated on scene and then carried, using the Rescue Stretcher and wheel to a waiting East Midlands Ambulance at Beeley Top farm.
Both teams headed back to their base to clean some very muddy kit.

    I am the gentleman who you helped on this incident. I would like to wholeheartedly thank the teams for the assistance you gave me, without you I don’t know what would have become of me. I was taken to chesterfield hospital where it turned out I had broken both tibia and fibula in my left leg. I was operated on on Tuesday and had a metal plate inserted into my left leg. I was discharged on Thursday. Many thanks again, Martin
