A 78 year old man sustained suspected pelvic injuries following a fall whilst walking with his wife and a friend at the remote beauty spot. Initial treatment was given by NWAS paramedics whilst team members prepared for a stretcher carry off the hill. However, shortly after arrival at scene it was confirmed that an air-ambulance was on route and consequently only a short transfer carry to the aircraft was required. The casualty was flown to a Manchester hospital.
The casualty’s wife and friend were taken home to Poynton by team members.
