Incident report

A joint Buxton Edale snatch squad was called to Edale around lunchtime for an injured walker on the Kinder plateau.

The casualty, a 20 year old male from Marple, had a suspected dislocation of the knee. He was treated on site by an Edale team doctor and then carried off the hill via Grindslow Knoll on a stretcher by team members.

The casualty was transferred to paramedics of a waiting land ambulance in Edale, and transported to Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport for further treatment
