Incident report

A school field “trip” triggered a call-out for the Joint Team Snatch Squad to the lower part of Grindsbrook near Edale.

A fifteen year old student from Leicester, on a school geography field course, slipped on a boulder causing injury to her leg.  Appropriate first aid was rendered by team members before she was placed on a stretcher for the short carry back through Grindsbrook Meadows to Edale village.  An East Midlands Midlands ambulance soon arrived to take the girl to a children’s hospital in Sheffield.
