Incident report

Buxton team called to assist an EMAS ambulance crew to evacuate a 42 yr old female from Northwich, who was walking with a friend across a steep grass bank, when she slipped on the wet vegetation and fell/rolled some 30 feet down a rocky outcrop, sustaining an injury to her right lower leg which left her immobile.
She was treated on site by the EMAS Paramedics and loaded onto our stretcher and evacuated a short but tricky evacuation to the waiting ambulance, near to Aldery Cliff. She was then transferred to the Macclesfield District General Hospital for further treatment.
