Incident report

Buxton team called to evacuate a 32 year old male from Macclesfield who had been leading a climb and hit the ground when his protection failed.  The casualty, who had lower back pain, was treated for spinal injuries and evacuation by stretcher to the top of the crag and evacuated by air ambulance to the Northern General hospital where a further examination revealed that he had in fact been most fortunate and only sustained severe bruising.
