The team was already engaged on a call-out at Teggs Nose so additional members were called to arrive at Dane Bridge, Wincle, in advance of the team vehicles which were close behind. The location of the accident site meant a walk in of over a kilometre for members with the equipment but quickly rendezvoused with ambulance paramedics already treating the casualty.
A fifty-two year old lady from Middlewich, had slipped on the muddy path and sustained a suspected fractured ankle injury. Following medical treatment the lady was placed on a rescue stretcher for a carry-out to the waiting ambulance and onward transport to Macclesfield hospital.
