Incident report

A Buxton Edale snatch squad was tasked to an incident in the Edale area.

A 15 year old girl from Bedford was walking with her family who were on holiday in the area. Between Ringing Roger and the Nab on Kinder Scout, she suffered an injury to her ankle which immobilised her.

She was treated on site by a mountain rescue doctor, including splinting and pain relief, placed on a stretcher and carried for more than 1 kilometre to the ambulance in Edale Village.  She was then transferred to the Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport for further treatment.
