Buxton team were called to locate and evacuate a 70 year old male from Hale, Cheshire who whilst walking with his wife and friend had slipped on a greasy muddy path and fallen heavily. He sustained leg and shoulder injuries and was cold when we arrived.

He was then transferred to the Macclesfield & District General Hospital for further treatment.
